Argentina beat Poland 2-0 and ensured its place in the round of 16 as leader of Group C, displaying the game with which ‘Scaloneta’ has accustomed us. Despite the defeat, the Europeans also managed a ticket to the next phase. However, a meeting between Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski caught the attention of viewers.
The rivalry between Messi and ‘Lewa’ has a close history, specifically with regard to the 2021 Ballon d’Or that the Argentine ended up winning, but many considered that the Barcelona striker deserved it.
This clash came true in the World Cup, during Argentina vs. Poland. The 95th minute of the match was running and Lionel Messi was handling the ball in the central circle when Lewandowski went to press rigorously. The referee whistled the foul. The Pole, then, tried to greet the ’10’, however, he, disgusted, did not even look at him.
Despite the rumors of an apparent fight between the ‘cracks’, at the end of the game both players could be seen chatting pleasantly. “They taught me that everything that happens on the pitch stays on the pitch and everything that happens in a locker room stays inside the locker room. Nothing from intimacy is going to come out of me, ”said the Argentine.
