Last night, Argentina qualified in pain for the knockout stages of the 2018 World Cup. Faced with Nigeria, Albiceleste went through all states. Happy after the opener of Lionel Messi, stressed after the equalizer of Victor Moses, then released when Marcos Rojo scored the goal of the win (2-1).
Sometimes criticized for his lack of leadership, Lionel Messi has this time proved that he was indeed the man Argentina needed. His speech at half-time proves it in the best way, but also his attitude on the ground. Not necessarily used to making huge efforts to hinder the relaunch of his opponents, the southpaw fought yesterday on all the balloons, like this sprint followed by a tackle full of rage in the 92nd minute of the match .
THE PERFECT ATTITUDE OF MESSI AT 92nd MINUTE:

An exemplary attitude that positively surprised football fans. They were not asked to make it known on social networks. An English fan went so far as to explain that this type of gesture showed that Messi was indeed above CR7.
