The story of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is the story of Lionel Messi. From Lusail Stadium in Qatar to the rapturous welcome at Bueno Aires, to the heroic reception at his home, Messi has made his mark in football, scripting his name into the history books of the game.

The dressing room celebration in Qatar was a tip of the iceberg. A sea of heads was awaiting the former Barcelona playmaker as he arrived in Argentina’s capital Bueno Aires with the 18-carat gold trophy.

It was a celebration galore at Bueno Aires as Messi stepped out of the airplane with the trophy, including his teammates and the team’s coaching crew.

The team alighted into an open-top bus, on which they were driven through the excited and cheering fans who reportedly numbered up to 4 million. However, the fans appeared to over helm the bus as the celebration continued.

Following the reaction by the fans, the open-top bus victory parade had to be cut short, and Messi and his teammates were transferred to a helicopter that flew low above the jubilant fans.

It was apparent that the crowd at Bueno Aires was uncontrollable, and an open-top-bus parade could not restrained them from having access to the players. Some fans hijacked a Police vehicle as the celebrations went wild.

After what appeared to be chaotic Bueno Aires celebrations, forcing him and his teammates to be evacuated into a helicopter, the 35-year-old returned to his home city for the first time since lifting the World Cup.

As he arrived at his luxuriantly furnished and gated property in Rosario, fans numbering up to hundreds have squeezed into the entrance of his home. They were chanting, ‘Dale Campeon, ‘ translating to ‘Let’s go, champion.’

Security escorts had to push away through the crowd and hewn a narrow path in the middle to allow his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo, to drive through into the building.

Messi was born in Rosario and also started his football career playing for Newell’s Old Boys based in the city.

His family left Rosario to Barcelona when Messi was at a very tender age.

Lionel Messi was raised in the Barcelona Academy, where he emerged as one the greatest players ever known in football.

He is now playing for Ligue 1 giant Paris Saint-Germain after leaving Barcelona, his boyhood club, in tears. He signed a two-year deal with PSG, which will expire next summer.

PSG is in negotiations to renew his contract, with rumors linking him to a possible move to MLS.

Messi regularly travels back to Rosario and his home, which is on a private estate called Kentucky in Funes.
