Sportsmen are crazy about Lionel Messi!

In these days the last matches valid for the FIFA World Cup are being played in Qatar, the last major sporting event concerning the world of soccer. The first semifinal of the tournament was played between Lionel Messi's Argentina and Luka Modric's Croatia.

The challenge saw the triumph of the South American national team who achieved success with a clear 3 to 0. Messi opened the scoring and then contributed to the brace of the Manchester City youngster Alvarez. The PSG star, six-time Ballon d'Or winner, played a crazy match, scoring his first goal from a penalty and dragging the team along with incredible plays, such as when he assisted Julian Alvarez's second goal, a goal that saw a crazy play by the Argentinian.

Even the social world went wild with Messi's plays and consequently several tennis players also praised the plays and performances of the South American national team.

From Djokovic to Murray, how much praise for Messi

One of the first to compliment Argentina and Lionel Messi was former world number one, Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic.

Nole has published an Instagram Stories where he publicly congratulates the Argentine soccer player and his team. Congratulations also to the losers with Nole thanking Croatia for the beautiful World Cup played. Argentines Diego Schwartzman and Gisela Dulko have published Stories on social media to celebrate their nation, but tennis players such as Andy Murray and Stefanos Tsitsipas have also celebrated Messi.

Murray tweeted with an almost sarcastic message to the first goal commenting: "Who scored for Argentina?" in an almost ironic tone to underline the umpteenth career goal of the South American champion. Tsitsipas also posted a tweet praising Leo's performances and underlined that Messi is probably playing the World Cup with one of the best moments of his career.

Tennis also loves Leo Messi and the footballer's performances are making the eyes of all fans sparkle. Tomorrow there will be the much awaited final: could Messi win his first World Cup?
