After Argentina – Estonia – Lionel Messi, author of a quintuplet, lives again: “He’s like Rafa Nadal”

Once a glass ceiling, the Albiceleste is today, for Lionel Messi, an escape. At the end of the least convincing season of his career, disputed with Paris Saint-Germain, the man with seven Ballons d’Or regained his selection and colors. Last Wednesday, he had a great game to help his team to crush Italy (3-0) during the return of the Finalissima. Sunday, in a friendly against Estonia, he took care of everything.

In 76 minutes, the Argentinian scored five goals, one less than in his entire season in Ligue 1. Five goals against one of the weakest nations on the European continent (110th in the FIFA rankings), certainly. But still five goals. The time of an international break, a few months before a World Cup which is the last great quest of his career, Messi becomes himself again.

A quintuplet with Argentina: Messi goes back in time again


I don’t know what else to say about himcommented his coach Lionel Scaloni after the match. It’s difficult. He is like Rafael Nadal. I think it’s better for journalists to talk, because there are no more words to describe it. It is unique. It’s a pleasure to have him in this group, to be able to train him. His demeanor, his dedication to this jersey…“Casing nothing, in Europe, it had been a few months since Messi had been the center of attention. In Paris, Kylian MbappĂ© captured all the light.

The day he stops, we will miss him

To observe his body language, his expressions and his attitude, the former Barcelonan welcomed this international meeting as a real breath of fresh air. Which, throughout his career and at least until the final victory in the Copa America a little less than a year ago, had not always been the case. Chance or coincidence, Messi has found everything that made his magic. Against Estonia, he succeeded in everything. And everything worked out for him.

Should we already consider an eleven without Griezmann?

He has a magnetsmiled Papu Gomez, holder during this meeting and smuggler for the Argentine idol, in remarks relayed by AS. When he has chances, he puts them all“Sometimes a winger, sometimes a creative, often in the right place, sometimes as a fox, Messi did just about anything he wanted in the Estonian defence.”On the last goal, it looks like the ball asked him to scoreblew defender German Pezzella. He is incredible. And he seems to get better game after game.”

Blossoming, Lionel Messi is preparing to experience decisive months for the turn he wishes to give to his career, both at club and national level. At 34, he is enjoying it. U.S. too. “I do not believe that it is only the heritage of Argentinapointed out Scaloni. He is the one of the whole world. The day he stops, we will miss him. Hope it still continues and everyone enjoys and protects it.”
