Messi’s magic secured Argentina’s vital victory

Argentina was under heavy pressure, but Lionel Messi and Enzo Fernandez secured a very important victory over Mexico with a score of 2-0.

– They have a lot of pressure. The way they responded deserved a championship team, said NRK football pundit Kristoffer Løkberg after the match.

– Now they have registered again, he said further.

Messi softened expectations after the important victory.

– We can’t drop our shoulders now. We have a lot of finals left, and we can’t afford to make mistakes, said the superstar after the match.

Messi has been relatively invisible for a good period. But like so many times before, he emerged at just the right moment and fired the ball into the net from outside the box.

With it, he scored his eighth World Cup goal. There are as many as Diego Maradona.

With three minutes remaining in regular time, Fernandez got the ball from Messi after a short corner. He followed up with a fine finish, where he curled the ball into the far corner.

Previously, Argentina had been struggling for a long time, and they weren’t able to create good chances. The problem is probably Mexico didn’t create big chances either.

Both Argentina and Saudi Arabia now have three points, while Poland has four. Precisely Poland is the last opponent of Messi et al.
