Messi finally got his hands on the World Cup in December

They beat France on penalties after so much drama – with all the big names performing on the biggest stage of all.

Posting a video on Instagram, Messi said: “One of the most beautiful months in the world and I still can’t believe it. What a beautiful madness we lived during all that time that we ended up raising the cup that we all wanted so much.

“Obviously, being champions makes everything more beautiful, but what a beautiful month I had, how many beautiful memories I have and miss. I miss my colleagues, the day to day with them, the mates, the talks, training sessions, the bullshit we did…

“How nice it was to see my family enjoy an unforgettable experience every day for everyone and how beautiful it was to go to the games and see the madness of the people on the field and in Argentina.

“Thank God for so much. Like I said, I knew you were going to give it to me. What I couldn’t imagine was after having achieved it and I wasn’t wrong, because I could never have imagined the madness of the people at the festivities.

“Well, it’s been a month since we are… WORLD CHAMPIONS!!!”
