Qatar 2022: I cried when Messi won World Cup – Nadal

Published

on

Tennis star, Rafael Nadal, has revealed he shed tears watching Lionel Messi lift the 2022 FIFA World Cup for the first time.

Messi captained Argentina to World Cup glory in Qatar last Sunday.

He also went home with the FIFA Golden Ball as the best player at the tournament, after scoring seven goals and providing three assists.

Nadal has now spoken about how he was overcome with emotions during the match.

He said, ”Messi lifting the World Cup made me happy. That someone so great culminates with a title that was missing, of this calibre, with all that it means for Argentina, it seemed fair to me,” Nadal said.

“I enjoyed it and I was moved. Without siding with Argentina, when Messi scored the third goal tears came to my eyes.

“It was because of the emotion of seeing someone so great achieve what was missing, having suffered so much to achieve it.“
