My soccer fan friends tell me Messi has always been in Maradona’s shadow despite arguably being the better player. I assume he’s an equal now.

He's a much better player I believe.  Maradona just happened to come up big on the big stage.

That was a hell of a game. One of the few World Cup games that have the intensity of the Premier League.

Many Argentinians appear not to be able to overlook that Messi was brought-up outside Argentina.

Have a good 2023 (or should that be MMXXIII... :lol:) everyone.

Over and out..;)

just watched the award ceremony, incredible. My son said someone posted on tiktok from a balcony in buenos aires, there was a roar across the city when Argentina won.

This was almost about the worst possible disaster for Argentina that one could have imagined:
