Messi, who added 4 new records, is it too much to say ‘the most goals in the World Cup with 16 goals’?
Is the highest goal in the World Cup unreasonable?
‘God of football’ Lionel Messi (35, Argentina) broke four new records as he advanced to the final of the 2022 Qatar World Cup. The remaining goal is the most goals in the World Cup, but it doesn’t seem easy.
Messi took the lead in a 3-0 win against Croatia on the 14th, recording one goal and one assist in the quarterfinals. 토토사이트
According to the British media ‘The Sun’, Messi broke the record for the most goals in the World Cup in Argentina, the most assists in the World Cup in Argentina, the first attack point in 4 games in one tournament, and the most appearances in the World Cup.
Messi scored 11 goals and 9 assists in the World Cup finals alone. He added 5 goals and 3 assists in this tournament. He is tied for the lead in scoring and assists this tournament.
Prior to that, Argentina’s most goals in a World Cup was Batistuta’s 10 goals. Argentina’s most assists in a World Cup were Diego Maradona’s eight.
The record for the most appearances in World Cup finals was Germany’s Matheus with 25 matches.
Messi played 20 matches, including the 2006 World Cup in Germany, the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
They advanced to the finals of the Qatar World Cup and secured 7 matches, including 3 group stage matches, 16 rounds, 8 rounds, 4 rounds and finals.
The record for most goals in a World Cup is 16, held by Germany’s Miroslav Klose. Messi needs to score 5 or more goals in the final to reach it. Five goals in the final of a world-class competition is next to impossible.
However, if Messi appears in the 2026 World Cup, there is a possibility. No one knows whether Messi will continue his career until then.
Klose participated in four tournaments from the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup to the 2014 Brazil World Cup. Klose scored 5 goals in the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup, 5 goals in the 2006 World Cup in Germany, 4 goals in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and 2 goals in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. He reached the semifinals in all competitions he participated in and achieved one championship, two runners-up, and two thirds.
Meanwhile, Messi’s final opponent is the winner of France vs Morocco. Defending champion France is the strongest contender. Morocco is the protagonist of the biggest surprise in this tournament.
