"The Argentine team is Messi and ten of them," said Barcelona's Lionel Messi. "The Bulga used to play with Albersa and his stars until he became like a fish that does not know how to swim outside the Camp Nou."
Images and videos from Argentina's matches against Colombia and Paraguay were published in Cuba America. The first ended with a 2-0 loss and a 1-1 draw, which made Messi's partners just around the corner from a humiliating exit from the continental championship.
Just look at this ffs 🤦️🤦️🤦️️ Messi left alone vs 3 players in a 5 meter radius. Tagliafico holding his knees and does not care about the ball. And where is the rest of the Argentina team?!?!?!? pic.twitter.com/9A8RexV4nx- Erik Stange (@ ErikStange99) June 20, 2019
The first picture that swept through the sites and was used by the international football sites came back to Paraguay when the match was in the 94th minute and three minutes before the end (the referee added seven minutes instead of lost). Messi is fighting eight players while his colleagues either watch him or get tired In the final minutes of the game.
The other video and picture is the opening game of the Albaceleste against Colombia. In the 60th minute, he takes the ball from the middle of the pitch, sprints five players, then drops and continues to play the ball to spur three players before Juan Corrado makes a violent mistake and gets a card Yellow.
If it was a 5v5 match Argentina just MIGHT have a chance. Messi can not be lifting 10 wooden sticks alone playing by his side. Unbelievable ...
In the form of the game, Messi appears surrounded by five players and finds no colleague close to him or a good position to receive a pass from him.
Pass to who? His whole squad still playing defense in the other side. Passing the ball back will just let the defense of Columbia regroup ... look at their defenders that they've got their turn away from him.
