As irresistible as he is for Barcelona, he is just as dirty in an aqua-blue jersey. Despite leading Argentina to the finals of four international tournaments, the title touch is still elusive. Messi still regrets losing two consecutive Copa America titles in 2015 and 2016.
This time there was an opportunity to lift the trophy at home. But he also hopes. Argentina is not hosting the Copa America because of Corona. Even then, he wants to win his first title for the country in this event.
Messi said that being able to play in a tournament for the national team is something special. Whatever the venue. Senior or junior, all the footballers of the team have the same goal, to win the title. We have a great team under Scaloni. I am looking forward to giving some good gifts to the team.
Messi and De Maria are busy practicing to prepare for the World Cup qualifiers. On the other hand, Argentina is going through a difficult time due to the horrors of Corona. Disaster cannot be avoided even by declaring a state of emergency. The best star in the football world is not in a good mood at such a critical time in the country.
Messi said the country is in a difficult situation in Corona. We are having a very bad time. The infection is increasing every day. Even then people are somehow continuing their lives. Although normal living is now almost impossible. Yet we are creating ourselves. I am especially happy to join the team at this strange time. The gift that Messi wants to give to the country in the difficult times of Corona.
Argentina last won the Copa America in 1993. This year’s event of the centenary tournament may be the last event of Lionel Messi. The gift that Messi wants to give to the country in the difficult times of Corona.
