As far as the story goes, Lionel Messi has already announced it this will be his last World Cup for Argentina, who were among the favorites to win the tournament despite losing the opening match to Saudi Arabia. After securing his first international trophy by winning the 2021 Copa America with Argentina, there is no better way for Messi to let go than with a World Cup title. Ronaldo has not announced that this will be his last World Cup, but the Portugal forward will be 41 years old at the time of the next World Cup. Safe to say Father Time is undefeated.
