Declan Rice Reacts To Messi’s World Cup Triumph

Declan Rice’s 10-word Twitter message after the irrepressible Lionel Messi fires Argentina to World Cup glory against France.Argentina ended their 36-year wait for a World Cup trophy last night, after beating France on penalties following a 3-3 draw after extra-time.Most neutrals were delighted to see Lionel Messi fire Argentina to World Cup glory out in Qatar.The mercurial 35-year-old Paris Saint-Germain star experienced his best World Cup ever, with seven goals and three assists in seven games to his name – quite the achievement considering his age.Messi is one of the very best footballers of all-time, if not the best.Last night’s World Cup win probably sealed his GOAT status, and one West Ham player lent credence to that notion.The Hammers captain was at home watching the Argentina vs France World Cup final like the rest of last night, after he and his England teammates were eliminated from the competition at the quarter-final stage.

Obviously Dec would have liked to have been playing in the final, but watching the Argentinian superstar strut his stuff on the world’s biggest stage was a decent alternative.And like the rest of us, the 23-year-old was blown away by Messi.Declan Rice took to Twitter and posted a 10-word message about the great man: ‘We will never see a player like Messi ever again’.I agree with Rice here. Messi is the Greatest Of All Time, in my personal opinion.The 35-year-old Argentinian ace has bagged an incredible 695 goals and 332 assists in 831 games for Barcelona and PSG combined. He has also scored 98 goals in 172 games for Argentina (Transfermarkt).From a personal perspective, Messi captivated my imagination as a fan when he burst onto the scene with Barcelona 17 years ago.The diminutive South American superstar has unbelievable talent, and the fact that he has now capped off his career with a World Cup trophy sits right with me.It was written in the stars wasn’t it.Declan Rice’s 10-word Twitter message after Lionel Messi fired Argentina to World Cup glory sums up what the 35-year-old’s fellow pros think of him.We all need to cherish this little magician every time he plays now because one day he will hang up his boots. And we absolutely shouldn’t take him for granted.
