According to the Rules of Allocation (article 12), the amount of first-choice nominations that Messi earned in votes from national team captains divided the 2022 World Cup champion and Norway international Haaland, who were tied on 48 scoring points. With 35 points, Mbappe, the striker for France, came in third.

In addition, Messi was named the 2019 FIFA Men’s Player of the Year. Before that, FIFA named him the best player in the men’s division five times: in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2015. This is Messi’s sixth individual title overall.

After guiding Argentina to FIFA World CupTM success in Qatar, La Pulga Atomica was crowned The Best Men’s Player in 2022. In 2023, he added more hardware to his trophy collection as PSG repeated as Ligue 1 winners, winning the French title.

Remarks What others said about Messi

Head coach of Argentina, Lionel Scaloni

“We purchased him in part to encourage the upcoming American soccer players to pursue careers in the sport. Thus, bringing him along does that, and it’s crucial for us. That kind of person alters the rules. That kind of person motivates a new generation of soccer players.”
Co-owner of Inter Miami David Beckham

“My brother… We tried everything, but it didn’t work out the way we had hoped. Being with you for an additional two years was a pleasure. I wish you well on your new journey and happiness. I cherish you.”
Neymar, a former teammate of Paris Saint-Germain

New Zealand won by 9 wickets (82 balls left)

New Zealand Won ODI World Cup 1st Match against England

New Zealand cricket team 1st ODI World Cup 2023 match against England by 9 wickets, Ravindra and Conway both player makes century and makes 273 runs partnership.

Chasing is an art and the pair of Rachin Ravindra and Devon Conway have just handed a masterclass in the same. When England were restricted to 282 runs, it felt like it might be a tricky chase and when Will Young got out for a golden duck, New Zealand must have had a few nerves.

New Zealand vs England Match Summary:

England: · 282/9 (50)
Joe Root 77 (86) | Matt Henry 3/48 (10)
Jos Buttler 43 (42) | Glenn Phillips 2/17 (3)

New Zealand: · 283/1 (36.2)
Devon Conway 152* (121) | Sam Curran 1/47 (6)
Rachin Ravindra 123* (96) | Liam Livingstone 0/24 (3)

But that is where a young guy like Ravindra can help you, absolutely no fear and he took on the English pacers from the word go. Conway too was on the move early on and given just a few months back he raked up runs for fun in the Indian T20 League, that would have given him the added confidence.

The pair put on a mammoth unbeaten 273-run stand shattering the previous highest partnership for New Zealand in a World Cup by more than 100 runs. Conway finished with 152 as Ravindra too stayed unbeaten on 123 and even hit the winning runs.

New Zealand’s skipper Tom Latham says that it was a fantastic performance. Adds that it was an unbelievable partnership between Devon Conway and Rachin Ravindra and it was all setup by the bowlers. Credits the bowlers for restricting England to a below-par total.

Mentions that they have had a pretty good build-up leading up to the event and they have experienced guys in the side as well.

Feels that it is about adapting to the conditions as quickly as they can. Shares that Devon Conway and Rachin Ravindra played proper cricketing shots which was pleasing to see. On Rachin Ravindra, he says that it was pretty special to watch and they are looking forward to getting around him later on.

England’s captain, Jos Buttler says that it was a disappointing day and they were outplayed by New Zealand but it is just one loss of what is a long tournament. Mentions that a lot of guys in their squad have been on both sides of results like this and hopefully can bounce back right away.

Adds that they were well below par and they should have got at least 330 given how the wicket played and New Zealand simply got off to a flying start. Says that they did give away a few wickets playing poor shots and weren’t clinical enough with their shot-making. Also says that Devon Conway and Rachin Ravindra did play some really good shots and the conditions did change as the ball skidded on better and they played a long way short of their best batting.

On Joe Root, he says that he looked back to his old self, and no matter what format he plays, he is the best batter on their side but even for him, it is nice to get a few runs under their belt. Ends by saying that hopefully, Ben Stokes is back for the next game but it all depends on what the physios and trainers say.

Argentina won the qualifying round with Messi’s goal

Messi opened Argentina’s goal book in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers. Argentina started the World Cup qualifiers by facing Ecuador in Buenos Aires this morning Bangladesh time. The last time world champions got off to a good start with a 1-0 win scored by Lionel Messi. Messi scored the goal from a free kick in the 78th minute.

Argentina get off to a good start in their new World Cup campaign under the magic of Messi

Ecuador’s midfielder Moises Caicedo fouled Lautaro Martinez in front of his own box in the 77th minute and Argentina got a free kick. Messi’s curling free kick from about 20 yards out was seen by Ecuadorian goalkeeper Hernán Galindez into the net. The ball curled into the net near his right post so perfectly that Galindez moved a little to jump, but it was as if by magic!

The last time South America scored a free kick in a World Cup qualifier was 16 years ago. Colombia’s Ruben Dario Bastos scored the goal against Venezuela in 2007. Messi took his record a little further by scoring the first goal in the match in the history of World Cup qualifiers. Messi scored the first goal 14 times in the World Cup qualifying match. The previous record was held by former Guatemalan striker Carlos Ruiz. Argentina remained undefeated for 22 consecutive matches in the World Cup qualifiers.

Leo: “I came out because I was a bit tired. It’s probably not the last time that will happen [come out during the last minutes of the game]. It’s all good, I’m fine.”

Argentina dominated Ecuador by keeping possession of the ball throughout the match. But the attack could not benefit in that way. Finishing suffers. In the 70th minute, as Rodrigo de Paul and Messi exchanged the ball between themselves, they created a scoring opportunity past some Ecuadorian defenders. But Messi’s shot was blocked by Galindez. Until then it seemed that the match was going towards a draw.

But Argentina won the fifth consecutive match after winning the World Cup in Qatar last December with Messi-Magic. Lionel Scaloni’s team has also kept a ‘clean sheet’ in these five matches. Argentina scored 14 goals in these 5 matches. And Messi has also touched Luis Suarez’s record for scoring in the qualifying round of the South American region. The Uruguayan star (29) held the record for the highest number of goals in this continent’s qualifiers. Messi equaled his friend’s record by scoring against Ecuador.

Argentina got the first goal chance in the 16th minute of the match. Messi received the ball in a corner of the box. But could not take the shot properly. Hit the ball outside the post. A minute before the end of the first half, Lautaro Martinez hit the ball on Ecuador’s post. Galindez also blocked a shot by Rodrigo Di Paul, who played brilliantly throughout the match.

Argentina will face Bolivia in their second match in La Paz on Wednesday.

Paraguay were held to a goalless draw by Peru in the other South American qualifier. Colombia beat Venezuela 1-0. Each team will play 18 matches in the qualifiers from this continent. Out of the 10 participating teams, the top 6 teams will directly qualify for the 2026 World Cup. The seventh team has to play in the intercontinental play-offs.

Moeen Ali Retirement News

Moeen Ali retired After seeing India-England Test venue

Moeen Ali english cricketer confirms his retirement and England Test career is over, won’t tour India next year.

This time, Moin Ali is not keeping anyone’s request. Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum came out of retirement and returned to Tests . His performance in the Ashes clearly shows why he was brought back. It was Moeen who took 3 wickets in the second innings of the Oval Test as well.

The Ashes is over then? England’s next test in Tests is against India in early 2024, also on Indian soil. McCullum felt the need for Moeen again in such a series. However, Moeen Ali is not able to keep the request anymore, he has clearly stated, ‘I am finished here.’

Moeen Ali scored 180 runs and took 9 wickets in 4 Ashes Tests. Although the runs and wickets were not very high, he was effective. He took wickets at important times. He also had to fight with injuries .

The reason why Moeen will not play in the India series despite the team’s request is also interesting. One of the reasons why the English did not want to tour India was the lack of playing in a big venue. Moeen, however, explained the reason with a smile, ‘They (McCullum and Stokes) knew my decision from the start. Especially when the venues for the India tour were announced. Buzz (McCallum) told me again, I said, no, I’m not going to India. There is no chance of going to India. my end It’s great to finish like this and be a part of such a great day.’

Moeen believes that Test cricket is the best version, even though he quit Test cricket earlier, ‘Test cricket is the best. If I could go back! Although my career has had ups and downs, I wouldn’t have changed. I just love it. And it was difficult to come back like that, because I had never done well against Australia before.’

The English all-rounder still can’t believe he came back and played so well after two years, ‘I still can’t believe I did so well. It was great to finish like that. It was tough, but I had nothing to lose, it was like a free-hit. I thought I was bowling well, just worried about the finger. I was not worried at all about bowling.’

Moeen quit Test cricket for the first time in 2021. After that due to the injury of Jack Leach, Moeen returned to the Test due to the need of the team and departed from the Test arena with Broad in the Oval Test.

Sikandar Raja

Raja owns the fastest fifty in the T-10 League

Raja owns the fastest half century in the T-10 league at this year. Sikandar Raza is a Pakistani-born Zimbabwean international cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman who bowls right arm off-spin and plays as an all-rounder.

Sikandar Raja

Batting first after losing the toss, Ewin Morgan scored 134 runs in 10 overs. Bulawayo missed the target with 5 balls in hand. Evin Lewis scored the highest 49 runs for Harer. Taskin came bowling in the first over of the match; A wide and two fours for 9 runs. He did not give any run in the remaining four balls.

Coming to his second and last over in the eighth over, he gave 13 runs with three fours and a wide. But on the first ball of that over, Harare dismissed skipper Morgan with a great slower one.

According to the circumstances of the match, Taskin cannot be called too much of a scratch. Where the run rate of the opponent is 13.4, the economy rate of the Bangladeshi pacer is 11.

Bulawayo lost Ben McDermott in the third over chasing the target. Then began Raja’s devastating batting. Kobe added 88 runs off just 29 balls with Hart. Raja got out to be 2 runs away from victory but Beau Webster who got four got the job done easily.

Even in this victory, however, Taskin’s Bulawayo remained in the third place in the points list. The team’s points are 4 in 5 matches with 2 wins. Cape Town Sump Army top with 8 points, Durban Qalanders second with 6 points.

The league competition is held annually between clubs in the US MLS and Mexico’s Liga MX. This time 29 clubs of MLS and 18 clubs of MX will participate in this competition. The top three teams will qualify for the 2024 CONCACAF Champions League.

Meanwhile, after Messi’s announcement, the ticket prices for the Miami match started to increase. All tickets for the entire season have been sold out, not to mention his potential debut match. There are no tickets left for away matches. All in all, Messi madness is going on in American football. Therefore, the club is working to increase the number of seats in its stadium. The capacity will be increased by 3 thousand to 22 thousand.

But the discussion is going on about Messi’s security issue. Although there will be a problem with this, Jorge Maas thinks, ‘We saw that he was here with the Argentina team before the World Cup. He handled himself very well. We had the chance to see Messimania every day during practice. So we are very ready. We are preparing for it.’

Vissel Kobe vs Barcelona

Vissel Kobe vs Barcelona, friendly: Final Score 0-2, Pablo Torre shines as Eric Garcia and Franck Kessie goals secure win.

FIRST HALF

Barcelona almost took the lead within the first two minutes in Tokyo. Pablo Torre twisted, turned and fired a shot across goal that hit the bottom of the post and rebounded to safety.

Torre came close again in the 12th minute after receiving the ball on the edge of the area, A neat touch saw him slide past Iniesta and fire a low shot at goal that was blocked by the goalkeeper.

The youngster was at the heart of everything for Barca and teed up the opening goal minutes later. A neat pass picked out a Franck Kessie run, and the midfielder pulled out a pretty composed finish to slide the ball home.

SECOND HALF

The second half brought a host of changes with Jules Kounde, Hector Font, Gavi, Raphinha, Ferran Torres and Marc Giui all entering the fray at the start of the second 45 minutes.

There were more chances after the break for Barcelona too. Giui had a header tipped over the bar from another Torre corner, before Raphinha flashed a fierce effort wide.

Torre departed on the hour and Barca weren’t quite as creative without the midfielder on the pitch. More changes also followed with Arnau Tenas getting some first-team minutes in place of Pena.

Iniesta departed with 10 minutes left to play to a huge ovation from the crowd, and Xavi on the touchline, as he played his final game for Vissel Kobe after almost five years with the J-League side.
