Lionel Messi gave life to Argentina when they needed it most and led his team to a 2-0 victory this Saturday against Mexico in the match that was played for Group C of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. One of the headlines of the match was Lautaro Martínez, who considered the clash against the Mexicans difficult.
“The victory has a lot to do with it because we suffered a lot with the game we lost. We had already left him behind, but we had to get a victory, which was what gave us the most peace of mind and we did it against a very tough opponent ”, Lautaro said in statements to DirecTV.
The Argentinian striker did not hesitate to highlight the luxuries of ‘Leo’ within the match: “Mexico put up five defenders and it made us uncomfortable, for me it was also an uncomfortable game, but we have the best and once they resolved it.”
“We certainly saw it today. Happy to have him as a partner, happy to have him to experience every training session, every game with him.”added the Inter Milan player about Lionel Messi.
Lautaro considered that the match was complex due to the formation of Mexico: “Yes, we knew it would be like that. We didn’t know that so many people were going to put us in the middle and they were going to put pressure on us in their field. We had patience when moving it, but sometimes it was very difficult with a lot of people”.
“I felt good, but I touched few balls because there was little space. The important thing was that Argentina won today and we did it “specified the albiceleste attacker.
