Speaking after Argentina’s crucial 2-0 win over Mexico in Group C, Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni praised talisman and goalscorer, Lionel Messi, suggesting that even the opposition enjoyed the PSG forward’s display:
“Even the Mexican fans enjoy watching him play, even when he scores a goal against them – we all enjoy it. It was a terribly difficult game, against a great rival, and even more so because of how we came into the match. I’m proud of my team… The game changed, not only because we have Leo, but because we have great players throughout the team.”
After their shock opening defeat to Saudi Arabia, despite the win over Mexico, Scaloni’s side will need to beat Poland in their final group game to be sure of going through to the last 16.
