The man who draws a heart every time he scores a goal has shaken us again. That skinny left-handed man who, like Messi, has the ball tied up and who during Qatar 2022 an injury had not allowed him to shine. A goal, the play that caused a penalty, a huacha and constant danger to dwarf France and lower it from its pedestal.
Ángel Di María deserved this moment. Along with Messi, he is one of the few survivors of the previous generation that had been beaten by the same people who praise them today. When Scaloni took over the team he was criticized for keeping Di María. There was a motion to delete it at all costs. He was another Higuain.
But then came his goal in the Copa América final against Brazil at the Maracana. A superb balloon and, with it, reconciliation. A truce that allowed people to take off the blindfold and admit that Di María is not only the left-footed player with whom Lionel Messi is best understood, but also a star in himself, a high-carat player. Well, he has shown it at Madrid, at United, at PSG and now at Juventus. And in case anyone had any doubts, he was also present with a great goal in the Finalissima against Italy.
Di María is the best player in the final so far. No one has been as gravitating as him. First, he stopped with a hook to destabilize the French and provoke a penalty that Leo converted and then to crown a deadly counterattack from the Albiceleste with a pass to the net. Argentina wins 2-0. He is the world champion. Messi will lift his first Cup. Di María, the angel of important goals, could not be missing. Today he cries with emotion.
