David Beckham reacts on Instagram as Lionel Messi wins Argentina the World Cup

Lionel Messi kissing the World Cup was the moment most football fans wanted to see at this tournament and David Beckham is clearly no different.

Of course, any football fan knows how good Messi is. And over on Instagram, a certain David Beckham is just like any other fan in moments like this.

Beckham has taken to the social media platform to send his well-wishes to Messi with a simple ‘El Rey’ message. That translates simply as ‘The King’ in English.

Beckham is no stranger to winning things himself. And seeing Messi win a tournament Beckham has been so heavily involved in clearly delighted the ex-England skipper.

TBR’s View: Messi surely the best ever

Beckham’s message here is simple but effective and true. Messi is The King of modern day football and it’s even easier now to make the argument of him being the best to ever do it.

Messi produced today on the biggest stage under the biggest pressure. Yes, Kylian Mbappe was also outstanding but Messi was the main man for most of the game.

The best ever debate will always rumble on and people will always have different opinions. But right now, Messi is the main man.

David Beckham knows a top player when he sees one, and he’s clearly made his feelings known on the whole ‘GOAT’ debate with this post.
