Lionel Messi paved the way for Argentina’s victory (2-0) over Mexico in group C of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. When the game was closed, the ’10’ had a strong shot to score the first and then Enzo Fernández assured the triumph of the South American team that once again has hopes of qualifying for the round of 16.
In the stands of the Lusail Stadium, the family of the ‘Albiceleste’ captain experienced a separate duel and was moved by the victory. The wife Antonela Roccuzzo, the children Mateo, Tiago and Ciro and the player’s parents (Jorge and Celia) lived each play as if they were on the field.
The cameras of TNT Sports of Argentina captured the precise moment of the celebration of the clan of the soccer player who plays for PSG after seeing Fernández’s great goal. Everyone hugged and gave moving images that have become a sight on social networks.
After the match, Lionel Messi thanked his family for their constant support throughout his career. In the same way, he pointed out that his wife, his children and his parents suffered a lot after the fans’ criticism of the team after the defeat in the debut against Saudi Arabia.
“My family was there, as I always say they accompany them, they suffer a lot. The boys were bad, but today was a relief for everyone (…) Mateo left crying and Thiago did the math and explained that by winning both games we would qualify first “he declared at a press conference.
When will Argentina play again?
The Argentine team will face Poland this Wednesday, November 30, for the last day of group C. A victory for the South American team will allow them to ensure their qualification to the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar 2022.
