LIONEL MESSI’S hotel room from the Qatar World Cup is set to be turned into a museum.
The Argentina captain, 35, led his country to their third title in the Middle East – their first World Cup triumph since 1986.
Lionel Messi inspired Argentina to World Cup glory in Qatar
As well as the trophy, Messi also took home the Player of the Tournament honour for his sensational displays.
He contributed seven goals and three assists in their seven games and achieved a career-long goal in winning the World Cup.
Now Messi’s iconic campaign is set to be immortalised in Qatar through the opening of his hotel room to the public.
According to journalist Achraf Ben Ayad, the Barcelona legend’s pad at the University of Qatar will become a “small museum”.
It will give fans an insight into how Messi spent his downtime in between matches during his legendary run to lifting the iconic trophy.
He became the first ever player to score in the group stage, last-16, quarter-final, semi-final and final of the World Cup.
And the final will go down as one of the greatest ever matches.
Messi netted twice but a Kylian Mbappe hat-trick sent the match to penalties after a frantic 120 minutes.
Messi and Mbappe both dispatched their teams’ first spot kicks in the shootout.
And an Emi Martinez save from Kingsley Coman was then followed up by a miss from Aurelien Tchouameni as Argentina won 4-2 to triumph in the most remarkable fashion.
Messi has been relaxing since the World Cup win, although it has been reported he has verbally agreed a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain.
