Lionel Messi revived Argentina’s 2022 World Cup chances with a match winning display in their 2-0 win over Mexico.
Messi: “We returned to being who we are, especially in the second half.
“We can’t give up now,” said Messi. We cannot make mistakes because we must play in every final. We had been together for a long time, so I believe we complied because we were aware of how the people would respond. “I believe that we occasionally reverted to who we are, especially in the second half. Now, we shall attempt to carry on in this manner against Poland.
Argentina and Messi battled for fluency in the first 45 minutes against El Tri as a result of a shocking loss to Saudi Arabia the previous week, which increased the strain on them.
After the restart, Messi took advantage of his only genuine opportunity of the game to score from the edge of the box on minute 64.
