Argentina is a footballing nation and great footballers are usually celebrated to motivate young and upcoming players to continue developing their talents. Before Messi took the Word Cup, Diego Maradona was celebrated as the greatest footballer to ever be born in Argentina.

Messi’s recent success puts him in the same league with Diego Maradona who won Argentines World Cup 36 years ago. Maradona’s success will no longer cloud Messi’s and now it is Messi’s time to shine.
