Lionel Messi he was in charge of opening the account in the party Argentina vs. Mexico played this Saturday at the Lusail stadium, for the second and penultimate day of group C of the World Cup Qatar 2022. Watch the conquest of the ‘Albiceleste’ here.
About 63 minutes into the game, Ángel Dí María played towards the center from the right and the ‘Flea’ intervened near the croissant in the area to move the nets with a remote-controlled left-footed shot.
With his great goal, Messi brought Argentina to life when they needed it most and led them to a 2-0 victory over Mexico, which remains in a critical situation in Group C of the World Cup.
The current PSG player was the architect of the albiceleste triumph, first scoring 1-0, with a shot from outside the area, in the 64th minute, and then with the assistance for Enzo Fernández, in the 87th minute with a cross shot, sealed the 2-0.
Argentina thus revives after the debut defeat against Saudi Arabia and now adds 3 points in the standings, placing second, only surpassed by Poland, which is the leader with 4 units. The Saudis are third with 3 points —and worse goal difference than the Argentines— and the Mexicans close the key, with just one.
On the third and final day, Argentina continues to depend on itself: if they win they will achieve their goal of reaching the round of 16 and most likely as the leader.
A draw would make their classification depend on the result of Mexico-Saudi Arabia and a defeat against the Poles would eliminate Argentina.
