While it’s au revoir for Portugal, Argentina sink themselves in Russia at FIFA World Cup 2018.
It is farewell for Argentina, and probably for the last time in a world cup for Messi too, after being defeating by 4-3 by a dynamic French team, at Kazan, Russia in world cup 2018.
From today onwards, LM-10 will be known as George Best of Latin America. Because Lionel Messi has the same success rate in club football when compared to Best, and both never picked up a world cup.
In another match, Portugal Star Christiano Ronaldo also bid adieu to his dreams of lifting the FIFA cup 2018, as his team conceived a loss to Uruguay by 2-1.
However, according to experts, today onwards Messi’s contribution towards football will not be compared with Palo Rossi, Diego Maradona, Zinedine Zidane and Michel Paltini, they all won at least one world Cup for their country.
After watching the Argentina-France match, experts said, “Messi is now 31 and still a master of skill, touch, dribble and quick strike But his supporting cast looks weaker by World Cup standards, Messi and his team was overrun and outmaneuvered by the French skill, speed and young blood. It is like French kiss what soccer lovers’ relished yesterday at Kazan, Russia.”
After securing a position in the quarter final Didier Deshchamp said, “Our team is very young, but they gave a strong fight to the experienced and strong Argentina team.”
For the French 19-year-old Mbappe’ scored two goals and drew a penalty, from where Antonie Greizman scored a goal. Another came from Benjamin Pavard’s long shot that was an outstanding goal.
Di’ Maria, Gabriel Mercado and Sergio Aguero scored 1 goal each for Argentina, however, their defense acted like a villain for the team. Argentine defence gave more free space to Griezman, Giroud, Mbappe’ and others inside the D-box, and resulted in a 4-3 defeat.
At the quarter final France will face Uruguay as the Latin team beat Portugal by 2-1 at Sochi. Edinson Cavani of Uruguay scored two goals for his team, when Portuguese Pepe scored one goal on the 55th minutes.
Saturday was the last day of two super stars of football in 2018 FIFA world cup, LM10 and CR7.
At the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, they may not perform or even play, but their contribution for football would remain alive for lifelong, opined a spectator.
