Zabaleta: Messi is the greatest player, listening to him is not enlightening because you are not human.
December 15 recently, Messi’s former national team teammate Sabaleta published an article in the Sun, praising Messi.
Zabaleta wrote: “Messi is eager to win this World Cup.” As Argentines, we all hope so.
It was great to watch his performance, his celebrations and his passion on the pitch.
Tuesday’s game against Croatia was an enjoyable moment for all football lovers. Because I’m not sure if we’ll have a chance to see Lionel Messi at the next World Cup after this weekend.
You can see why so many fans have traveled thousands of miles from South America to Qatar and everyone is excited that Lionel Messi will play in the World Cup final for the second time.
At the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when we lost 1-0 to Germany in extra time in the final, it was hard to accept that we were so close to the championship.
We are going to play France on Sunday and we have to pluck up our courage. But every player has to enjoy the game, whether it is the end of the regular time or the full 120 minutes. Or a penalty shootout.
We have to be humble, down-to-earth and learn from the first loss to Saudi Arabia. We have seen a lot of unpopular games in this World Cup.
Messi left the national team for a while in 2014-2016 after losing three consecutive finals with Argentina (Germany in 2014 World Cup overtime and Chile on penalties in two Copa America finals).
There was a lot of criticism of him at that time, and it was a difficult time for Messi.
But after his return, he won the Copa America in 2021, and the final was still at home against Brazil, which relieved him a lot of pressure.
As you can see, at the age of 35, he enjoyed wearing an Argentine shirt on the pitch again and he was in a good mood.
Over the past three years, Messi has matured and become the true leader of the team.
Off the screen, Messi has always been an excellent professional athlete. He loves football and has a big family.
It’s not easy for people like him to go out. Everyone will recognize him, and it is difficult for such people to enjoy a normal life, such as watching movies with children or going out to play.
That’s why he spent most of his time at Barcelona hosting barbecue parties at home with his family.
The most important thing in this World Cup is that all the Argentine players follow Lionel Messi. He is a source of inspiration for young players, especially for players like McAllister who have little international experience.
You may have seen a picture of 12-year-old Alvarez and Lionel Messi. So imagine what it means to them now that they are fighting side by side with their heroes.
Lionel Messi has always been shy and quiet, and he is not a man who will open his mouth in the dressing room. But he is the kind of player who listens to him when he speaks.
Lionel Messi is one of the greatest players of all time, and if you listen to him without any inspiration, you are not human.
What I saw was that when Messi walked into the stadium as captain, everyone followed him. They fight for their lives and for Lionel Messi.
This makes us very excited in Argentina.
It’s great to see Messi lift the greatest trophy in world football. ”
