World Cup 2022: Two Maradona’s records Messi could break in Qatar

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, will have the chance to break two records held by the late football icon Diego Maradona at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Messi currently has 19 appearances at the quadrennial event.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is two games behind Maradona, who holds the record for the highest number of matches played by an Argentinian in the World Cup.

The 35-year-old also has five assists and needs four more to surpass Maradona’s eight assists at the tournament.

Recall that five of Maradona’s eight assists notably came in the 1986 edition, where the Napoli legend helped Argentina clinch the World Cup.

Meanwhile, Argentina are in Group C at this year’s World Cup and will face the likes of Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.
