Lionel Messi spoke about Argentina’s 2-0 win vs. Poland and the Round of 16 game vs. Australia.
Messi missed a penalty in the 2-0 win vs. Poland but was involved in creating chances for Argentina. Speaking to the media after the win, here is what he had to say:
“Angry for having missed the penalty but the team came out stronger after my mistake. We knew that once the first goal went in, it would change the game.
“The previous game gave us a lot of peace of mine and we went out onto the pitch thinking we had to win.
“The match against Australia is going to be very difficult. Anyone can beat anyone, it’s all even. We have to prepare for the game as we always do.
“We should be calm and take it match by match. Now, another World Cup stars and hopefully we could continue to maintain what we did today.”
