“No Excuses, We Got Disorganized” – Messi Reacts As Saudi Arabia Defeats Argentina



Lionel Messi, Argentina’s captain, has responded to his team’s shocking loss to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday in the Qatar Word Cup matchup.
According to Akahi News, Argentina was the clear favorite to win the Group C matchup against Saudi Arabia.
Argentina, on the other hand, lost the match that has been dubbed one of the greatest upsets at the world cup after starting on the front foot with a Messi penalty goal in the second half.
Messi acknowledged that the loss to his team was a “very heavy blow,” but that they would rebound in their next match.

“It’s a very heavy blow, a defeat that hurts, but we must continue to have confidence in ourselves,” Messi said.

“This group is not going to give up. We will try to beat Mexico,” he added.

Speaking further, the striker admitted that they made some mistakes in the game and allowed the tension of losing to get the better of them but promised the next match would be a better outing.

“We know that Saudi Arabia is a team with good players, who move the ball around well and play a high line,” said Messi.

“We worked on that but we rushed it a bit. At 2-1 we got disorganized, we lost our performance level and started desperately putting the ball into the middle.

“There are no excuses, we’re going to be more united than ever before.

“This group is strong and has shown it before. We had not been in this situation for a long time. Now we must show that this is a true group.”

Rallying Call

Messi urged the players not to be demoralized by the outcome of the game against Saudi Arabia but to focus on the next two games against Mexico and Poland.

“This is the time to stick together, to turn the page and not think about what happened.

“We always said we were going to (try to) win every game and now more than ever.

“We have to go back to the basics of who we are. We have to think about what’s coming next,” he said.
