Lionel Messi Signed Team Argentina Jersey Inscribed "Leo" (Beckett)

Argentina soccer jersey. Everything pressed on, size M. Hand-signed and inscribed by Lionel Messi.

Lionel Messi, one of the greatest footballers of all time, has had a storied career with the Argentine national team. While he has achieved immense success with his club, FC Barcelona, his international career has been marked by both brilliance and challenges.

Messi made his debut for the Argentine national team in 2005 and has since become their all-time leading goal scorer. Despite his individual brilliance, Messi has faced criticism for not winning a major international trophy with Argentina until the Copa America victory in 2021.

Over the years, Messi has played in multiple FIFA World Cups and Copa America tournaments, often carrying the weight of expectations from his country. Despite reaching the finals of the 2014 World Cup and the 2015 and 2016 Copa America tournaments, Argentina fell short each time, leading to frustration among fans.

However, Messi's perseverance paid off in 2021 when Argentina won the Copa America, defeating Brazil in the final. This victory was a crowning achievement for Messi, finally securing a major international trophy and cementing his legacy as one of the greatest footballers in history, both at the club and international levels.
