After leading Argentina to FIFA World Cup victory, captain Lionel Messi is now ruling the social media and Instagram as well. The Argentina footballer’s post after winning the mega event is now the ‘most liked’ image in Instagram’s history.

The football superstar Messi wrote in Spanish which could be translated as, “I dreamed it so many times, I wanted it so much that I still haven’t fallen, I can’t believe it…Thank you very much to my family, to all who support me, and also to all who believed in us. We demonstrate once again that Argentines when we fight together and united we are capable of achieving what we set out to do. The merit belongs to this group, which is above individualities, it is the strength of all fighting for the same dream that was also the dream of all Argentines… We did it!!!”

The star footballer also posted several photographs from the historic final in which Argentina won against France 4-2 on penalties after the match ended 3-3 in extra-time.
