Lionel Messi was in tears at the departure of Argentina in the World Cup final. He was still depressed after losing the tiebreaker to Chile in the next two Copa America finals. But despite losing in the semifinals in the last continental tournament, Elmten has seen a lot of change this time. At the end of the match, his inspiring speech made everyone weep, saying playmaker Anhell di Maria.
Argentina lost 2-0 to Brazil in the semifinals in Belo Horizonte last July. However, after three days, Lionel Scaloni’s team defeated Chile and finished third. Messi and Di Maria were even more likely to win the trophy for the national team as Argentina failed to compete again.
The disappointment of losing the opportunity to win the title once more against the opponent surrounded the whole team. But Messi did not let their frustrations break after the match. Di Maria told ESPN Argentina in an interview that after the match, the captain of the team gave inspirational words.
Di Maria, who spoke about Messi, said, “When we left Brazil after losing to Brazil, Messi said something beautiful. He said he was proud of our team. It said, ‘We couldn’t stay together for a long time because some (senior players) didn’t get a call before. Yet it seems we have been together for many years. “
Maria added, “He said, ‘From day one we have all been on the same path.'” She was proud of the young people for their self-esteem for this jersey. At the end of his words, everyone was crying. Because it touched everyone’s heart, especially young people. “
Messi has been criticized for failing to show Barcelona’s form in Argentina’s jersey. Many have even complained about not singing the national anthem. In response to these criticisms, Di Maria says he has seen Messi in Brazil’s Copa America. PSG’s playmaker says, ‘There is a lot of criticism about him, he doesn’t sing (national music), he doesn’t talk. This Copa America was different. He proved it. The way he spoke in front of the party, what he said in the face of journalists, made me very happy. The important thing is that Leo is like that. I like this Messi. ‘ See more news.
