The Argentinian actress, singer and child star Lali Esposito experienced last month the most exciting moment of her life, and a short time later also a particularly unfortunate moment, when she sang the Argentine national anthem before the World Cup final in Qatar, and about three hours later she was sexually harassed by a fan in the stands during the deciding game -Penalty fight.
Yesterday (Tuesday) Esposito came to a Spanish TV program to talk about the launch of the third season of the series she is participating in, "Sky" Ruho, which will be released this Friday on Netflix, and in the process told what happened to her in the day before the finale.
Esposito received the message that FIFA wanted her to sing the anthem only 20 hours before the game: "I got nervous, it was terrible because I was busy enjoying the World Cup like any normal fan, and I didn't have a voice because the day before I was at a party.
My agent told me that they wanted me to sing the national anthem at the World Cup final and I started to cry, I told him I wasn't capable, that I didn't have enough talent and I didn't deserve the opportunity."
In the end she found a dress.

The next thing Eli had to do was of course prepare for the performance of her life, and even here she encountered difficulties: "I experienced a lot of stress because I was looking for something to wear in the stores, and because I'm quite a dwarf, everything was huge on me everywhere and I cried in all the dressing rooms because nothing suited me. I seriously considered singing naked with the flag of Argentina, because I didn't have a dress, but in the end I found a stunning one and bought it at ten at night."
"FIFA dressed Messi like Aladdin in the biggest moment of his career.

About the dress rehearsals on the morning of the finals, she said: "At 11 in the morning I was in rehearsal among the FIFA people who were shouting, all kinds of people, people who said things I didn't understand, and I had a microphone in my hand without knowing what I was doing." Esposito, who pre-recorded two different versions of the national anthem , was afraid that her least favorite version would be played: "I surrendered to fate, I thought of my father and my friends with the colors of the flag on their faces in front of the TV and everything shrunk to a small thing like 'I don't know how I will sing, but I will sing from the heart which is what is important in such situations.'
In the end they put the version I liked, I sang in my scale and everything was good."
