There are no more excuses for this defeat,” Lionel Messi told Vn88.cx on the way the club left Lusail Stadium to go to the bus, and returned to Argentina’s hotel accommodation after the defeat to Saudi Arabia. “This is a huge blow to us. Everyone didn’t expect things to turn out this way

Argentina had an early goal and a few other times the ball was in the net (but were denied by VAR), we thought we would create similar chances. That was our mistake. We still play the same way, and at the same time make mistakes. And when we conceded goals, we were confused, confused, and couldn’t find an effective way to get an equalizer.

La Albiceleste created few situations when facing the goalkeeper, passing the ball at the wrong time. I think we are having a hard time reactivating the football that we still play,” the Argentina captain dissected the defeat, and admitted he had anticipated what Saudi Arabia would bring.
