Angel Di Maria on Messi after the match against Mexico. Angel Di Maria praised Lionel Messi, his teammate from Argentina, for saving them yet another time. In the crucial FIFA World Cup match between Mexico and Albiceleste, the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward broke the tie. The South American powerhouses won 2-0 thanks to a goal from Lionel Messi, moving them closer to the Round of 16. Argentina’s World Cup campaign got off to a bad start when they fell to Saudi Arabia 2-1. However, after defeating Mexico, they are currently in a good position to advance to the knockout rounds.
Following the victory against Mexico, Di Maria discussed Lionel Messi and asserted that every goal the PSG forward scores are significant. I believe that Leo (Messigoals )’s are all significant. We are pleased for him because he deserved it. We couldn’t ruin everything we had been doing for one game. The objective is to place first among the group. We are aware that our triumph over Poland has put us in that circumstance. The winger stated (through the official Twitter account for Argentina football) that we will continue with the same happiness as always.
Argentina moved into second place in Group C after the 2-0 victory over Mexico, trailing only Poland, whom they will play in their final competitive group encounter. By scoring in the 2-0 victory over Mexico, Lionel Messi tied the World Cup record held by the legendary Diego Maradona of Argentina. With this goal, the former matched Maradona’s record of eight World Cup goals. In the competition’s history, Messi’s opponent Cristiano Ronaldo has also netted eight goals.
The PSG star also participated in the quadrennial competition for the 21st time, tying Maradona’s record once more. The fact that Maradona guided Argentina to the 1986 World Cup victory while Messi has yet to do so distinguishes the two legends of Argentina from one another. If the former Barcelona attacker succeeds in Qatar, it remains to be seen. His attention is currently on Argentina’s showdown against Poland on Wednesday, November 30, the final group-stage game.
