Who Is Antonela Roccuzzo
The FIFA World Cup 2022 final witnessed tears of joy and relief as Argentina lifted the winning trophy on Sunday, 18 December. Messi took his team to the FIFA World 2022 finals and a subsequent win on Sunday, December 18. Argentina won their third World Cup in extraordinary style, beating France 4-2 in a penalty shootout after Lionel Messi scored twice in a 3-3 draw that featured a hat-trick for France’s Kylian Mbappe as the holders recovered from 2-0 down after 80 minutes.

It was an incredible night of drama and fluctuating fortunes, delivering one of the all-time grand finals to cap a wonderful tournament. Cheering Messi from the stadium was his beloved wife Antonela Roccuzzo who is not talked about much.

Roccuzzo penned a heartfelt note for the star player, praising him to help Argentina clinch the FIFA World Cup 2022 title.

She wrote, “I don’t even know how to start… what great pride we feel for you, Lionel Messi. Thank you for teaching us to never give up, and that we have to fight until the end. IT’S FINALLY DONE, YOU ARE A WORLD CHAMPION, we know what you suffered for so many years, what you wanted to achieve this!!! Let’s go Argentina.”

While Messi rules the hearts of football fans and is an idol worldwide, the one who rules his heart is his beloved wife Antonela Roccuzzo who has been with him through thick and thin. From the very young age of five, the couple has been each other’s pillar of support as they pursued their different dreams and lived away from each other. She was with him when he was not the football legend that he is now and she is still there, supporting him in all ways. While the entire world cannot stop talking about Messi, his wife who often grabs the limelight in stadiums is not that familiar to many.
