For the first time since 1986, Poland advanced past the Robert Lionel Messi group stage before falling to eventual champions France 3-1 in the round of 16.
Lewandowski added two goals to his Messi strong start to the season with Barcelona by scoring twice in the event.
Since moving to Camp Nou in the summer, the attacker has scored 18 goals in 19 games.
Lewy is optimistic that Lionel Messi will win an eighth Ballon d’Or as a result of his World Cup heroics despite his strong start to the season.
What did Robert Lewandowski say about Lionel Messi?
He stated the following in a Mundo Deportivo interview:
“There is maybe one more player that plays for the same club [Kylian Mbappe] but there is only one World Cup that decides who is going to win it this season and Leo is now in the top position for sure because of what he has achieved that means everything to him.”
During the World Cup group stage, Robert Lionel Messi and Lewandowski faced off, with Argentina prevailing 2-0.
After the game, the two Lionel Messi players had a talk. Lewy responded,
“I can only say that it was a lovely talk, when asked what the Robert conversation with Lionel Messi was about.”
“I don’t want to explain what we talked about but it was a lovely dialogue. I know that even after losing the first game against Saudi Arabia, Argentina were the big favourites to win the title.”
Lewandowski said when asked if he would like to play with Messi before retiring:
“It’s not up to me. Of course, we see that now he plays more like a ‘playmaker’, maybe he scores fewer goals and gives more passes to his teammates although he continues to score them.“
“But compared to other times, he is now the footballer that any striker would dream of playing alongside him.”
