World Cup: Messi knocks Argentina out of Mexico

Who else besides him? In an extremely dangerous situation after an unexpected defeat by Saudi Arabia (1:2), Argentina relied on its national emblem, Lionel Messi. Superstar Albiceleste was able to take on the responsibility of saving a nation that has placed its hopes of surviving this World Cup between the legs on Saturday in Doha against Mexico (2-0 win).

With a low kick to the ground from entering the opponent’s area, Messi found Guillermo Ochoa’s side net in the 64th minute of the game, before going into full trance as he was about to celebrate his second goal of this edition, terribly important for his choice. This is evidenced by this shot taken during his goal from the Albiceleste fan zone in Qatar.

Almost in tears, overwhelmed with strong emotions, Pulga scored their 8th achievement in the World Cup, entering the ranking of the best Argentine scorers in the Diego Maradona tournament. Messi, who is playing his last World Cup, is only 2 units away from Gabriel Batistuta, with whom he will try to join for the third and final day against Poland on Wednesday (20:00). Even in the 1/8 finals, if Argentina manages to snatch their ticket thanks to their genius.
