The 34-year-old pulled the strings in the attacking third and was a constant threat against the Euro 2020 champions. 

He brilliantly created the opening goal for Lautaro Martínez, gliding past Giovanni Di Lorenzo​ to set up the Inter Milan forward. 

Messi grabbed another assist late on, teeing up second half substitute Paulo Dybala.

Away from his two assists, the Paris Saint-Germain man ran the show. He completed the most dribbles, created the most chances and won all his 10 duels. 

Messi looked hungry and focused as he delivered a stellar performance on the international stage, sending a warning to the major nations ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

Needless to say, Messi's outing in London sent social media wild.

Speaking after the game, Messi said: "It was a beautiful final, full of Argentines. What we experienced here was beautiful.

"We’re here to fight anyone. Today was a nice test because Italy is a great team.

"We knew it was going to be a nice match and a nice setting to be champion."
