Lionel Messi’s World Cup post most liked Instagram picture ever


Lionel Messi’s post holding the World Cup trophy is the most liked picture ever on Instagram.

Messi breaks another record, this time, off the pitch. The World Cup champion posted a picture of himself holding the biggest prize in World football and it has broken the record with 60 million likes.

Previously, the most liked picture ever was that of an egg. However, people quickly took notice of Messi’s picture and some even went and unliked the picture of the egg, while liking Messi’s picture.

Messi’s Instagram picture now stands at over 60 million likes, with more and more likes increasing every second.


  1. I was nervous to watch it on tv. I start to watch on TikTok and then the penalty shootout on no video but text. I was maintaining some good luck which I carry it from Q final

  2. Finally our dudes get some recognition:

    When it comes to the Ballon d’Or award, Lionel Messi is head and shoulders above the rest.

    The Barcelona legend is the only player in history to win the accolade on seven separate occasions, with no other footballer triumphing more than five times.

    And the year of 2023 could see Messi further add to his record haul.

    After Argentina’s epic victory in the 2022 World Cup final over France, Messi has taken pole-position in the race for the next Ballon d’Or.

    The 35-year-old scored seven goals at the Qatar edition of the tournament, including two in the final itself.

    Due to his heroic efforts on the international stage, Messi was presented with the Golden Ball award before he lifted the Jules Rimet trophy at the Lusail Stadium.

    So unless the Argentine fails to score or assist a single goal for the remainder of 2022/23 with Paris Saint-Germain, which is highly unlikely, a place on the Ballon d’Or podium beckons once again.

    Following the World Cup final last Sunday, labelled by many as the greatest ever, the folks over at Goal have named and ranked the 20 players they believe are part of the race for the trophy – which is currently held by Real Madrid‘s Karim Benzema.

    And unsurprisingly, it’s Messi who leads the way, with Benzema and five-time winner Cristiano Ronaldo nowhere to be seen…

    All the players above starred at the 2022 World Cup. Musiala was the only member of the 10 to not make it out of the group stage, but he was still electric in a fairly underwhelming Germany side.

  3. Argentina hero Martinez has Serie A links: ‘Why not?’
    Dec 19, 2022 17:25 – by Susy Campanale – 7 Comments.

    Damian Emiliano ‘Dibu’ Martinez was named Best Goalkeeper at the World Cup and the Aston Villa man’s agent admits Serie A would be an interesting move for the Argentina hero. ‘He is targeting the Champions League.’

    The 30-year-old performed several big saves during the thrilling 3-3 World Cup Final against France, and of course during the shoot-out that gave Argentina the trophy.

    He joined Aston Villa in a €17.4m deal from Arsenal in September 2020 and is under contract until June 2027, but with the World Cup secured is probably seeking a higher-profile transfer in January.

    “There are few clubs right now who could afford a goalkeeper like him. But Serie A, why not?” agent Gustavo Doni told Tuttomercatoweb.

    “Clearly, he is aiming high and targeting the Champions League.”

    Martinez also showed during the Final all the worst aspects of his character, specifically the mind games with players during the shoot-out, throwing the ball so strikers had to walk further to get it, and then posing with the Golden Glove in a lewd fashion on the podium.

    “It’s football, these were impulsive reactions. It is more important to talk about his decisive save only a few minutes from the end. He showed great skill.”

    Doni also represents Fiorentina defender Lucas Martinez Quarta, who was left out of the Argentina squad after struggling for regular playing time at the Stadio Franchi.

    “He has admirers in the Premier League and if a good option should present itself, we will evaluate it.”

    –Finally my man wants Champions league futbol! Go Emi! You have got the World Cup, Finalissima, Copa America and 3 best goalies award: Best WC goalie, best Copa America goalie, best EPL goalie 2 years ago. Nothing else to achieve there in Villa. Go to a CL team and get the best goalie of FIFA team of the year! No Alisson, Ederson, or Courtouis ain’t no better than you! Not even Donnarumma.

    Who in serie A would be perfect for him? Milan and Juve have good goalies. Inter too. Hope Napoli! Oh Chelsea, MU, Munchen, Spurs are also interested.

  4. The emotions are not settling in. The joy in enormous. I am still screaming in the house, when no one is around. I go to the bathroom to scream my joy!!!

    I do want to share my thoughts on the game, on our players, but cannot bring myself together. Have been here for over 12 years, in worldcupblog earlier for 8 years. 36 years since I saw Maradona lift the trophy. I was a kid then, now an old man.

    18th December 2022, will be one of my happiest day of my life!!

    Newcastle manager Howe on Enzo Fernández: “I’m aware of Enzo and I know him. But I think the transfer fee to sign him might be quite lumpy”, says via @CraigHope_DM

    “Shearer said he’d be good for us? I’m sorry Alan, I was on the other channel”.

    Newcastle United guys?

    • Enzo Fernandez is all around midfielder, he is one the reasons Argentina won world cup, believe me I haven’t thought Argentine will get better deep laying playmaker than paredes anytime soon but I’m glad arg have Enzo Fernandez who is best midfielder Argentina have right now, one more thing Enzo has young baby despite been 21 that shows you he has character and he is already a man I’m sure he won’t be benfica player coming to summer.

    • NewCastle united is going to leave previous big teams behind. They have more money than Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea. NewCastle will be the new Chelsea/Mancity.

  6. So its its time to say sorry 😂
    El principe brother and other guys who doubt mac, montiel etc, its time to say sorry..
    I was little bit Against montiel inclusion so i say sorry to montiel😂 now its your time…Insider, casabala and me and others i forget now are always back macalester and get result❤️
    I always think macalester is good player but honestly i’m surprise too what he played at qatar.just class, Unbelievable, fantastic… .world class world cup for him and enzo too…

    • O i just remember maybe choripan arranged a voting where macalester got 3 vote😂
      I hit1 but don’t know about other two voters.. I really want to know who hit other two?

      • > I hit1 but don’t know about other two voters.. I really want to know who hit other two?

        lol. Nice job.

        I can’t tell from looking at the survey takers but maybe the 2 others will confess?

    • Before the world cup, after Lo Celso’s injury, I thought apart from Messi and Di Maria, no one else is there to carry the ball from mid. I also thought though Mac Allister is good technically, he may not be capable of doing it with speed. But I am happy that I was wrong about him. From the Mexico match onward, I became a fan of Mac Allister, especially because I could see how skillfully he passes the ball to Messi at promising positions. For me, Mac Allister, Enzo and Alvarez introduction to the XI was the turning point for Argentina. They were consistent throughout the tournament and so sure starters in all the matches from Poland onward, along with Messi, De Paul, Otamendi and Emi.

      • I fully agree with you all that Mac Allister, Enzo and Alvarez were the turning point of this success. Alvarez has been with the team since last year , but mostly as a sub for few minutes. The way these three switched the gear of the whole team is unbelievable , which we couldn’t think of even when the WC started..
