After winning an incredible game against France, the football legend Messi was seen lifting the World Cup trophy for the very first time in his career after playing 172 international matches for his country, Argentina.
35-year-old Messi said in his victory speech, “I wanted to close my career with this, it was the one that was missing so I can no longer ask for anything else.”
“I was able to get the Copa America and now the World Cup that I had fought so hard for. I’ve got it at the end of my career. But I love football and I want to continue living a few more games being world champion.”
No doubt, the greatest football player, Messi has millions of fans from all over the world, but his top fan is his loving wife, model, and childhood friend, Antonela Roccuzzo.

The pair saw each other first time when Messi was just six-years-old and Roccuzzo was five-years-old. Their love story is quite different from other footballers as they didn’t meet in gaudy nightclubs or on social media.
They both met each other when they were kids, Messi knew her because of his childhood friend, Lucas Scagilia who is the cousin of Antonela.
In the early Nineties, Messi saw the love of her life first time and after first stare, he instantly asked: ‘Who is She?’ to which Lucas replied, ‘she is my cousin, Antonela.
According to Scaglia’s father, a young Messi could get his eyes off from her for a second and spent two days as her neighbor. After spending two days with her Messi realized that he wanted to live his whole life with her.
The beautiful couple has three sons, 10-years-old Thiago, 7-years-old Mateo, and 4-years-old Ciro.
In the year 2017, the love birds got hitched nearly 25 years after their first meeting. Their marriage was named as Argentina’s ‘wedding of the century’ in which 260 guest were invited. Famous footballers, Neymar, Luis Suárez attended their wedding ceremony and Gerard Pique also appeared with his former partner, pop star Shakira.
Roccuzzo’s wedding dress was designed by a Barcelona-based-designer named Rosa Clara, who also dressed actress Eva Longoria and the Queen of Spain, Queen Letizia.
While giving an interview to the Marca in the year 2019, Messi told about his wife that she is great in every aspects of life.
“The truth is that [I admire] everything [about Antonela],” he said. “She has many good qualities: how she gets by on a daily basis; her personality; she is always in a good mood; and she always faces up to problems in an admirable way. She is a very intelligent person who is great in all aspects of life.”
For supporting her childhood buddy, and husband, Messi, the glamour WAG reached Qatar last month.
According to the Daily Mail, “Travelling without her three sons, who attend a private international school in the French capital, the WAG appears to be enjoying her time in Doha, enjoying a night out with fellow footballer’s wife Sofi Balbi, who’s married to Argentine star Luis Suárez.”
“The close friends were clearly enjoying their night out in the balmy Middle Eastern city. Ibiza is a regular holiday destination for the two women, enjoying yacht holidays and luxury hotel breaks with their respective husbands – who played together at Barcelona.”
On December, 18, Argentina beat France and won the dramatic final by 4-2 on penalties Lusail Stadium.
After winning the nail-biting match of 90, minutes, the South Americans celebrated their victory and the last game of FIFA 2022 in Qatar. When everyone was busy in celebration, the philanthropist, influencer, and former dentist made her way onto the pitch to kiss and hug her husband after he made the winning goal for his team.
