But what is the sound of destruction in the happy world of Argentina? Footage of the Argentina team training in Miami is doing the rounds on social media. It can be seen that Lionel Messi and Rodrigo de Paul are talking about something. At one point, Atletico player De Paul slapped Messi lightly. Then Leandro Paredes came and took De Paul away. De Paul can be heard saying, ‘Are you stupid, Leo?’
No, Argentinian fans have no reason to worry after seeing this footage on social media! Because the whole incident happened in the guise of fun. Messi’s team will play two international friendlies in the United States to sharpen themselves up a bit before the World Cup. The first match is against Honduras at 6 am Bangladesh time, and the next match is against Jamaica two days later. The Argentina team is practicing at the Fort Lauderhill training ground ahead of the Honduras match. This happened there.
De Paul is a big fan of Lionel Messi.
If Lionel Messi says that he will think about going to war – this is what the footballer said a couple of years ago, impressed by Messi. De Paul also played a big role in bringing Messi to the Copa America title in the national team jersey. De Paul’s pair of jokes with teammates. And sometimes the captain of the team becomes the character of his joke.
Messi & De Paul back together 🤪🏼pic.twitter.com/uS4djW5H35— Judy❣️ (@messisbabe) September 21, 2022
If they win or draw these two friendly matches, Argentina will make a record of being unbeaten. Argentina is unbeaten for 33 consecutive matches. In that case, if they beat Honduras, Lionel Messi’s team will make their record of being unbeaten. Before this, Argentina had set a record of 33 matches without defeat from 1991 to 1993.
After Honduras, a win or a draw against Jamaica will move Argentina into joint second place in the all-time record with 35 consecutive matches unbeaten. Brazil’s previous record was 35 unbeaten matches between 1993 and 1996. The record for consecutive match wins now belongs to Italy. Roberto Mancini’s team won 37 consecutive matches from 2018 to 2021.
Not a record ahead of the World Cup, Lionel Scaloni will likely have his eye on improving team chemistry. Argentina will play in Group ‘C’ in Qatar World Cup. Messi will play there against Mexico, Poland, and Saudi Arabia.
