Star Footballer Lionel Messi’s Room in Qatar where he used to stay during FIFA World Cup 2022 to be turned into Museum.
The room, which was reportedly shared with Messi’s lifelong friend and colleague Sergio Aguero towards the end of Argentina’s triumphant World Cup campaign, will no longer receive guests.
Qatari news agency QNA has confirmed. Instead, plans have been revealed to make the area a mini museum, with the belongings of the Paris Saint-Germain star retained in all their glory for other students and visitors.
“The room of Argentina national team player Lionel Messi will remain unchanged and will remain available only for visitors and not for residence,” Hitmi al Hitmi, director of communications and public relations at Qatar University, has told Qatari newspaper Al Sharq.
“Messi’s belongings and will be a legacy for students and future generations and a witness to the great achievements Messi has reached during the World Cup.”
Messi was instrumental in his nation’s first World Cup triumph in 36 years and was named player of the tournament after netting twice in the final. The 35-year-old picked up the silver boot after netting seven goals on his way to the one trophy that had always evaded him in an otherwise illustrious career.
Remember here one thing Argentina began the tournament with a shock 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia, but eventually made it out of their group after winning beating Mexico and Poland.
In the round of 16, Argentina edged Australia 2-1 and had to dig deep to defeat the Netherlands on penalties after 120 minutes of football ended 2-2. The semi-final saw the Albiceleste outclass a Luka Modric-led Croatia side 3-0 before relying on a penalty shootout to overcome France.
