Lionel Messi hails “spectacular” and “important” Enzo Fernández

Speaking after Argentina’s 2-0 win over Mexico in Doha, Argentina captain Lionel Messi discussed the importance of 21-year-old Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez to the Albiceleste team, after Fernandez’s goal secured a crucial win for his side in Group C. Messi said:

“I know Enzo very well, here from the national team and I also played against him in the Champions League. He deserves it, because he’s a spectacular kid and a very important player for us. I’m very happy for him and for us, because the goal he scored gave us peace of mind in the game. We didn’t expect to start the World Cup with a loss, so we wanted to turn the situation around. Enzo’s great goal ended the game and now we can face the game against Poland in a different way.”
