Lionel Messi vs Kylian Mbappe

The 2022 FIFA World Cup Final is upon us and it will be Argentina vs France for the biggest prize in football on Sunday. So, I thought that we should do an article about 2 of the most important and best players from this match and see who among these 2 is the best in the world and I will give arguments for both of them . We will be talking about Lionel Messi vs Kylian Mbappe and incidentally these 2 play for the same club in Paris Saint Germain.

Before we get into the arguments , I am happy to see that these 2 players of such great talent are good friends as well and Kylian Mbappe wants to learn from Messi but for the next few days these 2 will be playing for their nations to win the World Cup. And these 2 have also been the best players in this World Cup so this debate is happening at the right time. So, let’s get into the article.


Lionel Messi


First we will talk about both these players separately and then I will give my opinion. First Lionel Messi does not need any introduction because he has been the best in the world for over 15 years so much so that everyone in football calls him the GOAT. Lionel Messi is a true Marvel of football because the things he is able to do with a football is truly mind boggling and he has 35 years old now and the fact that he is in the end of his career and still he is producing his best ever World Cup performance with 5 goals and 4 assists shows the class of this man. I have no issues in saying that he is my all time favorite football player and he has made me into a Barcelona and a PSG fan. If Lionel Messi wins the World Cup then he will be the greatest of all time.


Kylian Mbappe


Without a doubt the best young player in the world and Erling Haaland is not close because he is unable to replicate his heroics for the club teams for his nation. Kylian Mbappe is the fastest player in the world as well and he has already won the World Cup in 2018 where he scored 4 goals and he was the find of the last tournament and in the 4 and a half years he has become the best goal scorer for PSG and France as well. In this World Cup he has scored 5 goals which means he has 9 Goals in just 2 World Cups and he is going for back to back World Cup Titles and if he wins on Sunday then he will be the best in the world. Once Lionel Messi retires then he will be the undisputed best in the world.


Who is the best in the world?


For me Lionel Messi is still the best in the world. And I say this because last season he was “Finished” and everyone said that he was done and to come back from that and give his best season yet for Argentina and for PSG says everything you could know about the man. Lionel Messi is the greatest football player and not just a goal scorer because the assists he has had in this World Cup are out of this world and he has taken Argentina to the final and in the final he will give it his all to win his ultimate prize.
