What if Messi Faced Ronaldo a the World Cup Final?

On the grounds of the World Cup Lusail Stadium, Messi shakes hands with his historical rival Ronaldo before the start of the dream final, so that football fans will witness the last global fight between two of the strongest and most skilled players in the history of football.

The excitement and enthusiasm increase with the two teams being tied and they resort to penalty shootouts, which Argentine star Messi manages to settle in favor of his country, Argentina, and leads it to hold the World Cup for the third time in its history.

Thus, Lionel Messi has literally sealed football by achieving all possible collective and individual tournaments and followed in the footsteps of the legend Diego Armando Maradona in gifting the people of Argentina the most precious world title.

This scenario was predicted by a supercomputer, as it was determined that the 2022 World Cup final will be between Argentina and Portugal.

In research published by the Canadian company "BCA Research" and reported by the English website "Four Four Two", the computer predicted that Argentina would win the 2022 World Cup final at the expense of Portugal, on penalties.

The computer was based on player statistics from FIFA as well as a sample of 192 group stage matches and 64 knockout stage matches played during the World Cup between 2006 and 2018.

The computer also predicted that the England team would be eliminated from the semi-finals by Portugal on penalties, in a repeat of what happened in the 2006 World Cup when the Three Lions were eliminated from the tournament against "Brazil" Europe as well.

The research indicated that England would reach the semi-finals after leading the second group before defeating Senegal in the round of 16 and Mexico in the World Cup quarterfinals.

It is worth noting that the draw has placed Argentina in Group C along with Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Poland.

The Argentine team will open its matches in the tournament on November 22 against Saudi Arabia, before facing Mexico on the 26th of the same month, and the Argentine team will conclude its group matches against Poland on November 30.

While Portugal is in Group H, along with Uruguay, Ghana, and South Korea.

The Portuguese team will open its matches in the tournament on November 24 against Ghana, before facing Uruguay on the 28th of the same month, and Portugal will conclude its group matches against South Korea on December 2.

The World Cup in Qatar is likely to be the last World Cup to witness the appearance of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, as the Argentine revealed this in previous statements before retracting recently and indicating that he has not made his final decision yet.

On the other hand, the Portuguese will reach his 38th year in February next year, and his participation in the 2026 World Cup is out of the question, as he will then be 41 years old.
