Messi’s goal gives Argentina victory over Mexico


The Argentina national team after the fiasco in the match against Saudi Arabia no longer had the right to make a mistake in the meeting with the uncompromising Mexicans. Any result, except for the victory, made the task of getting out of the group as difficult as possible.

Lionel Messi and partners took the upcoming match very seriously. But in the first half, Argentina failed to show anything outstanding. The Mexicans closely followed Messi, sometimes even together, however, the Mexican team also created only one dangerous moment.

After the break, the pattern of the game has not changed. And then everything was decided by individual skill. Messi found an opportunity to shoot from outside the penalty area and hit the far bottom corner exactly.

This goal was the eighth for the leader of the Argentines in the final part of the world championships. In this indicator, he caught up with his eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

And in the 87th minute, Enzo Fernandez sent the ball into the Mexicans’ goal with a beautiful blow from Messi’s pass. 2-0, Argentina continues to fight for the playoffs.
