Argentine forward Lionel Messi stated that the world cup would have been empty without Argentina in it.
Lionel Messi made this comment after he helped his country secure a place in Russia 2018. The Argentine forward scored an impressive hat trick against Ecuador to book a ticket in the world cup.
The Argentine forward scored twice in the first half and added the third in the second half. After the match, he made this statement:
“Fortunately, everything went well and we are into the world cup. We are now calm after achieving the main goal- that is the mos important thing.
All this time that we were away from the press, the fans helped us to be closer. It would have been a crazy world cup without Argentina, this group didn’t deserve it. The team will change, we will grow a lot and will come out stronger. It was a relief because we were in a tough spot. We got ourselves into this mess. It was not easy to play here, a lot of things happened from my mind when the 0-1 came. But the group overcame the situation very well and was quick to take the lead.
There was some fear of missing the world cup. We let pass a lot of opportunity and we had to decide our future in this game.”
