It is poetry: the man who turns what was tragedy into harmony, into an embrace, into faith. It’s geometry: placing that ball at the impossible angle where he put it is more than a shot, a stroke. It is, above all, extraordinary: for almost 20 years, Lionel Messi He has turned Sundays into masses, football matches into celebrations, and anguish into his way of doing heroism. Almost lame, with problems feinting and even biting – I suspect he plays loaded, injured, sore – men like Messi need just a minute, a ball, a court to reveal why they have been chosen. They don’t play soccer, they play another sport, to the point that we can’t understand them.
The worst Argentina that one imagined in Qatar 2022 beat Mexico 1-0 and the best soccer player in the world is soccer soccer player in the world. He played terrible, he never found the game, but he has a gift.He opened the sea so that his team can go to the second round -Wednesday defines with Poland-, more or less, what Maradona did in 86. What else can he do? be.
The history of Argentina is so remarkable that its players are not only Argentine: they have become multinational brands. Sports heroes that cross mountain ranges. Di Stéfano is loved in Colombia, adored in Spain, where they agree that he invented pre-Cristiano Real Madrid. Kempes is the scorer of the first World Cup that he won with Menotti in 1978, and his stamp was imitated by all the young strikers / children who at the end of the 70s wanted to be strikers and were called Matador. Maradona has images, photos, posters, phrases, fights, goals, titles, books, church, but there is always a morning when some discovery in Oman or Kazakhstan elevates him more than the day before. He elevates it so much that he takes space away from God.
Lionel Messi is none of them, but this afternoon against Mexico, night in Qatar, he has appeared in the only magnitude on which he is discussed: savior. “Yes, today was the true debut of Argentina in the World Cup,” he said at the end, with a calm that he is not from this planet. He looks like he just got out of a shower and not a fight. “We didn’t meet at the beginning, but we knew how to play it and there it is,” he adds. And nothing more.
If everything goes well, this is going to be an electroshock in the Argentine internal. And they owe it to Lionel Messi. Like when a Rolls Royce has a full tank and on the highway it doesn’t stop anymore.
