The star, Lionel Messi, broke the “Instagram” numbers by publishing pictures of the Argentine national team winning the World Cup in Qatar 2022. After the enthusiastic World Cup final ended with Argentina winning and crowning the World Cup for the third time in its history, the captain of the Argentine national team and the best player in the tournament published pictures of him on his personal page on “Instagram”, in which he appeared raising the World Cup for the first time in his history, after a 36-year wait for tango fans.
The Argentine national team won the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, after defeating its French counterpart by penalty kicks, after the end of the original and extra time with a tie score (3-3), in the match that brought them together on Sunday evening at Lusail Stadium.
After the match ended, Messi published pictures of him carrying the World Cup and other pictures of celebrating with his colleagues in the Argentine national team, as well as pictures of him raising the cup for the best player in the tournament, and wrote: “World Champions.”
Shortly after publishing the photos, the Argentine player’s account exploded with likes and celebrations from the fans, until the number of likes on the post reached, at the time of this writing, an unprecedented record in the history of admiration on the “Instagram” platform, as it exceeded 58 million likes.
Thus, Messi’s post surpassed Ronaldo’s post last month, before the World Cup, when Cristiano and Messi were seen playing chess, which collected 41.9 million likes.
Thus, Messi became an official record-breaker for “Instagram”, as he surpassed Chris Godfrey, who uploaded an egg image in January 2019 and obtained 56.1 million likes, with the aim of surpassing the most admired “Instagram” publication at the time (2019), which is an image Kylie Jenner’s daughter, who has 18.6 million likes.
