Argentina’s title chances and resilience were further questioned following a sluggish first half against Mexico at the Lusail Stadium. However, the nervous players’ faces lit up when Lionel Messi scored a beautiful goal in the second half. Enzo Fernandez added another equally impressive goal to keep Messi and their World Cup dreams alive.
The contest was challenging for us to win since Mexico played brilliantly. We played with a lot of intensity in the first half, but we were more composed and returned to our usual selves in the second. After the game, Messi remarked, “The win was a relief for the entire dressing room and offered us enormous delight.
If Messi’s goal calmed the agitated Argentine fan base, Enzo’s goal in the 87th minute ignited the celebration. “Enzo does not surprise me at all. He trains every day, and I am acquainted with him. He is a fantastic player and a crucial guy for us, therefore he deserves the goal. The Argentine captain expressed his happiness for him.
