A rundown of 2022 (Part one)

Happy New Year! Now that 2022 has come to a close, let’s look back at some of the things that happened during the last year. How many do you remember?

A great World Cup, but it was still tarnished

So, Argentina became the champions. In the process, they created a fairy-tale ending to Lionel Messi’s World Cup career. It arguably cemented him as the greatest player of all time...
