Lionel Messi Dead
The news that Lionel Messi had died shocked the world. Spanish media reported that Fox Sports sent a message that Messi had died on Sunday.
The news was quickly deleted, but it left the fans in disbelief. Some people were even speculating that the news was a hoax.
Pele’s daughter chooses Argentina and Lionel Messi to win the 2022 World Cup.
According to his daughter, Pele, the footballer who won three World Cups, was hoping for Argentina and Lionel Messi to win the 2022 World Cup. Kely Nascimento revealed in an Instagram post that her father would have backed Brazil’s South American rivals, which Croatia eliminated in the quarter-finals, had they been able to advance.
After a battle with cancer, Pele passed away on December 29. He watched the tournament from a hospital bed and regularly posted about it on social media.
“Pele wanted Argentina to win, and he was proud of Messi,” Nascimento wrote. She added that she relayed the message to Messi through his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo.
The Argentina forward, who turns 35 on June 14, is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in history and will attempt to follow in the footsteps of Pele, Diego Maradona, and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo. He is poised to become the first player in history to win a back-to-back title.
Messi pays tribute to Maradona.
One of the most iconic moments in soccer history was Lionel Messi paying tribute to Diego Maradona with a personal gesture. The Argentine striker lifted his shirt to reveal a red and black replica kit from Newell’s Old Boys in Rosario, Argentina, bearing the number 10 that the late legend wore when he played for the club.
The move became an instant social media sensation as pictures and videos of the gesture spread across the globe. However, it also came with a cost for the Barcelona star, who was fined 600 euros.
Born in a working-class family, Messi has been branded as the successor to Maradona because of his prolific goal-scoring and ability to dribble past opponents. He has won several Ballon d’Or and FIFA world player of the Year awards. He plays for Barcelona and captains the Argentina national team.
Messi distributes humanitarian aid in Syria and Turkey.
Argentine football player Lionel Messi has reportedly sent an aircraft full of tents, food, pillows, blankets, beds, and medicine to Turkey and Syria to help victims of the recent earthquakes. He also donated 3.5 million euros to his foundation to help needy people.
To support this critical response, the international community must work to overcome the obstacles that prevented it from providing relief in the aftermath of the quakes. First, Russia must pass a Security Council resolution that allows humanitarian access to the northwest of Syria.
Second, donors and the UN must redouble their efforts to directly support and invest in Syrian aid groups that lead the region’s relief and reconstruction. These groups have led the rescue effort for a decade and deserve a much better international response than we’ve seen.
While the humanitarian community must continue to deliver urgently needed aid to impacted communities, we must make sure that we’re doing it in a way that is legally compliant with international law. That means working to rethink the legal regime for cross-border aid, especially in northwest Syria, where the Assad regime has long wielded this flow as a weapon of war.
Messi pays tribute to Pele.
Pele was a footballing legend who changed the game. He was widely recognized as the world’s greatest player, and his death on Thursday brought a wave of tributes from the sports world.
His name is synonymous with football, and his influence remains as strong today as it did in 1958. That was when he made his stunning World Cup debut with Brazil in Sweden.
He scored six goals in four games, a debut bow record, and helped make him a global star. He won a World Cup and was named the best player in the world, while his teams also won Copa Americas.
Despite his extraordinary achievements, Pele was never quite untouchable. Brazil voted him the world’s second-greatest athlete in a poll conducted in 2014, trailing only Ayrton Senna.
The football world paid tribute to the Brazilian superstar on social media and in newspapers. Argentina’s Lionel Messi, who played alongside Pele during his time at Barcelona, was among those to pay their respects.
