L’Argentina it came out of the hole it was in with its opening defeat against Saudi Arabia beating Mexico in the second match of his group of World Cup. The 2-0 by Messi and Fernandez gives fresh oxygen to Scaloni’s team which now has to complete the work by winning against Poland in the last match of the group. Only in that case will she be sure of qualifying for the round of 16, otherwise in the event of a draw she will have to look at the result of the match played simultaneously between Mexico and Saudi Arabia, both equally at stake for the next round.
Lozano and his companions for their part only have to win against the Saudis, in the meantime they are licking the wounds of the defeat received by the Albiceleste. A very correct match on the pitch, in spite of the wild brawl who had preceded her among the respective fans on the streets of Doha. After the match, the liberating joy of the Argentine players was unleashed in the locker roomas documented by a long video posted on social media.
In the video – released by Nicolas Otamendi – you can see Scaloni’s players belting out Messi’s favorite chant: “I was born in Argentina, land of Diego and Lionel, of the boys from the Malvinas that I will never forget/I can’t explain it to you, because you won’t understand, the finals we lost for how many years I cried/But I know it’s over, because at the Maracana Dad won the final with the brazucas again/Boys, now we are excited again, I want to win the third, I want to be world champion/And we can see Diego, in heaven, with Don Diego and with Tota, encourage Lionel“.
An understandable enthusiasm, but someone stretched his eye and seemed to see familiar colors under Messi’s feet: those of the Mexican flag. From there to accuse the Argentina captain of using the symbol in question to clean the dressing room floor the step was short. It is impossible to determine with certainty from the images whether this is indeed the case, even if it does indeed appear to be the case Mexico’s number 18 shirt, evidently exchanged at the end of the game with its owner, Andres Guardado. The fact is that the thing has reached the ears of Saul ‘Canelo’ AlvarezMexican boxing champion, current holder of the super middleweight world title and considered one of the strongest boxers around.
The 32-year-old exploded on Twitter overnight, threatening Messi in no uncertain terms to change his characteristics: “Did they see Messi cleaning the floor with our shirt and flag??? Pray to God you don’t find it!! Just like I respect Argentina, you must respect Mexico!!“.
It goes without saying that Canelo Alvarez’s posts have unleashed an uproar among the comments, among those who said that the boxer exaggerated in his reaction and those who defend the Argentine champion by sword, explaining that he is not one to make gestures of this type and the shirt was on the ground by pure chance certainly not to be trampled on. At this point we have to wait for Messi’s answer, if he wants to clarify the matter, or he will prefer to postpone to concentrate fully on the continuation of the World Cup.
