Argentina, as you will remember, started the tournament in a disappointing way, with a sensational loss to Saudi Arabia after which the number 10 of the Albiceleste was mocked with the cry "Where is Messi?"
- But since Messi and his friends got into the rhythm, not enough to win, and yesterday Messi and Argentina presented their best game of the tournament, and without a doubt the most impressive.
The most memorable move in the game was the third goal, when Leo Messi tripped Croatia's goalkeeper, Josco Gabbariol, who was crowned until before the game as the most outstanding defensive player in the tournament.
But Guardiol also surrendered to Messi, who may have lost some of his speed and sharpness, but it is still difficult to get the ball out of his foot.
The stunning cooking was also filmed from the stands by Connor Calopsis, a young TV and film actor from Canada, who of course declared that "it's the best thing I've ever filmed".
The video went viral online, gaining millions of views overnight.
Lorenzo Manchado, a coach and commentator, analyzed the qualities of the flea: "What Messi has lost with his speed is his ability to leave behind a player thanks to the dribble, because now his guards manage to catch him. But if no help comes, his opponent will eventually surrender And he succeeded. Here he causes problems for the best stopper in the World Cup."
