Messi Finally Wins Trophy With Argentina After Many Attempts – What Lesson Do You Learn?July 11, 2021
Congratulation to Argentina, congratulation to Messi and his worldwide fans
The thirty-four-year-old leaving legend has finally won his first trophy with the senior men’s Argentina national team as Angel Di Maria‘s goal gave them a 1-0 win over hosts Brazil in the Copa America final. Argentina’s goal came in the 22nd minute after Rodrigo de Paul made a long pass to Ángel di Maria.
However, this happens to be the first-ever with the senior team because the record has it that he has won a world cup with the Argentina u17 team in 2009 against Nigeria.
The very first time Messi attempted to lead the senior men’s Argentina national team to a title victory was in a world cup tournament in 2014 against Germany. Unfortunately for Messi-Argentina, Mario Gotze scored a stunning extra-time goal to settle the FIFA World Cup final in Germany’s favourite.
He tried to reattempt again, this time around with Copa America against Chile in 2015 but their opposition sees the better of them as it ended on 4-1 penalties in favour of Chile.
The drought continues in 2016 as Argentina once again face Chile in the Copa America final and Chile repeatedly see off Argentina with a 4-2 win on penalties.
During those trying times, things are not really going well with the six times Ballon D ‘Or winner as he has announced his national team retirement severally due to frustration.
