FIFA Deletes Lionel Messi Tweet Following Backlash From Cristiano Ronaldo’s Fans

FIFA delete Lionel Messi tweet following backlash from Cristiano Ronaldo fans

 

After Argentina’s World Cup victory on Sunday, FIFA deleted a tweet about Lionel Messi.

Argentina won the World Cup for the first time since 1986, defeating France on penalties in a thrilling final.

Les Bleus’ Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick, but it wasn’t enough to secure France’s second World Cup in a row.

Argentina won 4-2 on penalties after Messi scored twice in the final and converted his spot-kick in the shootout.

What did FIFA tweet about Messi?

As the tributes poured in for Messi after the final whistle, FIFA also got involved, tweeting: “The GOAT debate is settled. The ultimate prize is now part of the collection. The legacy is complete.”

Despite the fact that millions of football fans around the world were saying the same thing, FIFA’s tweet went down like a lead balloon with Cristiano Ronaldo’s ardent supporters.

And, as a result of the backlash, the FIFA tweet about Messi has been removed.

“FIFA deleted this tweet after getting called out for being biased and receiving backlash,” @TimelineCR7, one of the biggest Ronaldo fan accounts on Twitter, wrote. “A professional account of the biggest football organisation in the world.

“It has always been Ronaldo vs the rigged system.”
