Qatar 2022 It’s a shame – Lineker slams FIFA for allowing Messi wear bisht during World Cup presentation. After Argentina won the World Cup on Sunday, former Barcelona great Gary Lineker questioned FIFA’s choice to let Lionel Messi accept the trophy while donning “a tiny robe.”
Argentina won the penalty shootout 4-2 after the 2022 World Cup final game ended 2-2 at full time and 3-3 in extra time.
To Lineker’s dismay, Messi was permitted to wear a traditional Qatari bisht.
“This is a special time. It’s unfortunate that Messi’s Argentina jersey obscured him in some manner, Lineker stated on BBC.
Pablo Zabaleta, a former Argentine international and studio visitor, concurred, stating: “It’s just why? not necessary.
Then, as he stepped away from the platform, Messi removed the bisht, and Lineker remarked, “He’s taken his little robe off now.”
