Argentina, who suffered a shock defeat to Saudi Arabia in the first game of the group stage of the 2022 Qatar World Cup and became a victim of surprise, was revived from the elimination crisis with the help of star star Lionel Messi.

Argentina defeated Mexico 2-0 in the second leg of Group C at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar.

In the 19th minute of the second half, Messi scored the winning goal, and in the 42nd minute of the second half, Enso Hernandez, who was assisted by Messi, scored the key goal.

Messi's goal expected value (xG) at the time of scoring was 0.02, a sophisticated mid-range shot that broke through a slim chance of 2%.

Messi honored him by posting a picture of the 'legend' Maradona on social media on the 25th before the game was held.

After scoring goals in two consecutive games following his first game against Saudi Arabia, Messi tied legend Diego Maradona's record with eight career goals in the World Cup.

Messi's fantasy mid-range gun that saved Argentina, 〈Sports Mug〉 delivers.
