Thanks to a World Cup shot, Lionel Messi breaks Cristiano Ronaldo’s record for the most liked Instagram post ever
Once again, Lionel Messi defeated Cristiano Ronaldo. This is due to the fact that his Instagram post from the World Cup is the most liked sports-related post ever, garnering more likes than CR7’s well-known image of the two playing chess.
A suitable conclusion to the World Cup was supplied by 35-year-old Lionel Messi, who led Argentina to victory against France in the championship match. Before Kylian Mbappe, the PSG team’s new star, scored twice to win the game and avoid penalties, the game was tied.
But Messi and his team managed to survive and capture the World Cup for the first time since 1986. This cemented Messi’s status as the best player in history. Compared to Messi, who has no club after his contract with Manchester United was terminated, Ronaldo’s situation is very different. Ronnie, who was 37 at the time, was only interested in joining a new Champions League team and helping Portugal win the World Cup in Qatar.
Since he had been sitting out the previous two games, Cristiano Ronaldo sobbed after his team was eliminated by Morocco from the quarterfinals. He shared a photo from a Louis Vuitton photo shoot in which he and Messi engaged in a game of chess last month. The image of the athlete became the most popular sport in history after receiving an astounding 41.9 million likes on Instagram.
However, it has been eclipsed now that Messi has an album of him supporting his nation during the World Cup. Messi’s photo may soon surpass the current Instagram record, which is held by an image of an EGG with 56.1 million likes.
