Declan Rice sends a short message to Lionel Messi after World Cup final

West Ham United captain Declan Rice has publicly hailed Lionel Messi as the greatest footballer of all time with his short but sweet comment on the Argentine’s Instagram post, writes the WestHamZone.

The comment read “The best ever” accompanied by two goat emojis, showing Rice has made his mind up on quite possibly the largest debate in the sports world.

Argentina shrugged off the reigning world champions France in an encounter that some are naming the best final to have ever been played in football history. Both sides were neck and neck over 120 minutes, but it was Lionel Scaloni’s side that prevailed from the spot.
