The poor performance in the World Cup is not because of Saudi, it is owed to them; Messi is open

Argentina, who lifted the World Cup under Maradona in 1986, had to wait until 2022 to become world champions again. Argentina won the world title through Lionel Messi, who was hailed by the world as Maradona’s successor.

Argentina started the tournament by losing their first game. Argentina suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to Saudi Arabia after leading by one goal.

Argentina took the lead through Messi in the 10th minute. But in 48 and 53 minutes, Saudi Arabia shocked the Mezipada by fighting back.

But Messi says that the worst match they played in the World Cup was not against the Saudis who defeated them.

Messi and his team faced Guillermo Ochao’s Mexico in the second game of the group stage. Many had judged that Argentina would not be able to overcome Ochao’s solid iron sword. But Argentina won by two goals.

Messi believes this match was their worst performance of the tournament.

Messi said this to La Nation.

“The game against Mexico was the hardest. In this game we did the worst,’ said Messi.

The first half of the game ended in a goalless draw. Argentina’s performance was such that every Argentinian fan wondered if they were going to lose one defeat after another.

But Messi gave Argentina the lead in the 64th minute of the game when he rested Ochao. Enzo Fernandez’s goal was also scored with three minutes to go.

Argentina managed to hit only five shots in total. Of these, All Target only has two. But Argentina managed to convert those two into goals.

Many have suggested that Argentina’s World Cup journey really began with this victory. After this, Argentina progressed unbeaten and won their third title by defeating defending champions France in the final.
