Messi finished Qatar 2022 with seven goals and three assists.

He also became the only player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final after Geoff Hurst for England in the 1966 final against West Germany.
- ⦿Emi Martínez, obviously… Could they really have another tournament goalkeeper? GOATkeeper, my sincerest apologies. He has been key in La Albiceleste’s winning streak in Qatar. He made two saves each in the quarterfinal shootout against the Netherlands and the final shootout against France, which led Argentina to the World Cup title. He also made crucial final saves against Australia in the round of 16 match and France in the final.
- ⦿Time to award the young player of the tournament… It’s none other than Enzo Fernández from Argentina. Fernández, 21, a central midfielder for Portuguese club Benfica, scored his first goal for the national team against Mexico in Argentina’s second group game. He assisted Julián Álvarez’s goal in the match against Poland, which Argentina won 2-0 and secured qualification for the round of 16.
The referees are being honored first.
