Lionel Messi is being honored by Qatar University by turning his hotel room into a small museum. Room B201 will not be available for reservations as the Argentina national team captain will be kept there.

Messi and Sergio Aguero shared a room towards the end of Argentina’s spectacular World Cup run. Visitors are no longer welcome in the room. Instead, there are plans to turn the space into a modest museum where the possessions of the Paris Saint-Germain footballer will be preserved in all their glory for current and future students and tourists.

“The room of Argentina national team player Lionel Messi remains unchanged and will only be available for visitors and not for residence,” Hitmi al Hitmi, director of communications and public relations at the University of Qatar, told Qatari newspaper Al Sharq.

On December 20, Lionel Messi and the Argentina national football team made their way safely to Buenos Aires after winning one of the most thrilling matches of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Argentina and France went head-to-head in a blood-curdling match in Qatar that lasted more than 90 minutes before Argentina was declared the winner. With Lionel Messi at the helm, Argentina managed to break a 3-3 tie by winning 4-2 on penalties.

Argentina has regained its position as a football superpower after decades of effort and five different World Cups. Messi also won the coveted cup that his supporters craved.

Messi received the Golden Ball in the 2022 World Cup final for being the tournament’s best player. He came behind Kylian Mbappe’s eight goals and scored seven. The French footballer received the golden boot for scoring the most goals during the competition. Messi is taking a well-deserved break after a successful World Cup run, but PSG will be without one of their main forwards due to a packed winter schedule.
