On Wednesday, the 35-year-old Albiceleste captain celebrated the one-month anniversary of his country’s historic World Cup win, a penalty shootout victory over 2018 champions France following a thrilling 3-3 draw in extra-time.

Messi took the time to recall the moments he shared with his teammates in the Middle East, and also the special experience his loved ones got to enjoy as he captained his countrymen to glory.

"One of the most beautiful months in the world and I still can't believe it," he wrote on Instagram, according to PSG Talk.  

"What a beautiful madness we lived during all that time that we ended up raising the Cup that we all wanted so much.

"Obviously, being champions makes everything more beautiful, but what a beautiful month I had, how many beautiful memories I have and miss. I miss my teammates, the day to day with them, the mates, the talks, training sessions, the bull**** we did.

"How nice it was to see my family enjoy an unforgettable experience every day for everyone and how beautiful it was to go to the games and see the madness of the people on the pitch and in Argentina.

"Thank God for so much. Like I said, I knew you were going to give it to me. What I couldn't imagine was after having achieved it and I wasn't wrong because I could never have imagined the madness of the people at the festivities.

"Well, it's been a month since we are… world champions!"
