It's over, ladies and gentleman. Stop the presses because Lionel Messi is a World Cup champion. The little boy from Rosario has dreamed of this moment coming for years, and finally, despite all the obstacles in place, Messi has done it.

This is bad news for the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo, though, as this settles things once and for all. Messi is the GOAT and no one can argue with that.

After winning the Copa America with Argentina, all that was left for Messi was to win the World Cup. Now that he's accomplished that, this man has literally done it all. What a player.
