After Lionel Messi won the FIFA World Cup 2022, many fans compared his victory to that of Sachin Tendulkar in 2011. 

Messi secured the World Cup in his fifth attempt after Argentina beat France on penalties. 

And Sachin took six World Cups to win the ultimate prize for India. 

Both the players previously faced heartbreak in the final of such mega-events. 

Messi lost to Germany in 2014, losing 1-0 in the final. 

Meanwhile, Sachin faced defeat in the 2003 final against Australia. 

Both Messi and Tendulkar were Players of the Match in their respective WC-winning campaigns.

And while leading their teams to glory, both players were wearing the no. 10 jersey!
