Less than five months before Argentina’s debut at the Qatar World Cup, the star will celebrate his birthday surrounded by family, friends and -perhaps- some colleagues from the “Scaloneta” in Ibiza, the place you chose to enjoy your last days of vacation. As mentioned, this does not usually happen since since the beginning of his professional career in 2003, Messi spent 11 birthdays dressed as “albiceleste”.
The first time was in 2005 during the Under 20 World Cup in the Netherlands, where at the age of 18 he was champion, scorer and best player in the tournament. The 34 were celebrated at the AFA venue in Ezeiza during the Copa América that was played in Brazil and in which Argentina was able to cut the streak of 28 years without titles in the majors with a 1-0 win against the local team at the stadium Maracana. In between, celebrations took place in other Copa Américas (Venezuela 2007, Argentina 2011, Chile 2015, United States 2016) and in the World Cups in Germany 2006, South Africa 2014, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018.
The man from Rosario will play his fifth World Cup at the age of 35 years, 4 months and 27 days and will try to join a select group of players who lifted the most important trophy in the world at that age or older. If he succeeds, Messi will be the oldest Argentine to be crowned world champion, third at the South American level and also third as a field player.
