Lionel Messi has revealed which team was the toughest to beat for Argentina, in their winning campaign at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. The Argentine team was off to a poor start at the marquee footballing event with a 2-1 loss against Saudi Arabia, which was their last loss of the 2022 World Cup. Speaking in an interview with Argentina radio station Urban Play on Monday, Messi revealed that Mexico was the toughest side they clashed against in Qatar.
“We had to win no matter what and that makes you play differently”
“The match with Mexico was the most difficult because of everything that was at stake and it was the one we played the worst, because we had to win no matter what and that makes you play differently,” the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner said. After beating Mexico by 2-0, Messi and Co. claimed a 2-0 win over Poland and advanced into the Round of 16. While the loss against Saudi Arabia had dented their self-confidence, the team jumped back with the thumping win over Mexico.
