“We’ll do our best to celebrate it in the Miami way. I’m sure we can do a good party,” Indian Express quoted Beckham as saying.
After getting the award, Messi said that it was his dream to win the World Cup. “It’s nice to be here once more to enjoy this moment,” said Messi, as quoted by the Indian Express report.
