Lionel Messi commented on Argentina’s 2-1 loss vs. Saudi Arabia at the World Cup.
Messi spoke to the media following the team’s loss against Saudi Arabia. Here is what he had to say:
“We have to go back to the base of who we are. We have to think about what’s coming.
“We knew that Saudi Arabia is a good team with good players, that if you let them, they’ll play well and that they defended that way. That’s why the situations we had were a little rushed.
“There are no excuses. We have to be more united than ever. This group is strong and has shown it. It’s a situation we haven’t gone through in a long time. Now we have to show that this is a real group.
“That the people trust us. It’s a very hard blow for everyone, we didn’t expect to start like this. Things happen for a reason. We have to prepare for what’s coming, we have to win and it depends on us. We began to cross, trying desperately to find the draw and it wouldn’t happen.”
