China News Service, Beijing, November 27th. In the early morning of the 27th Beijing time, the second round of the Qatar World Cup group stage competition continued.

In the focus of Group C, Argentina defeated Mexico 2-0.

In addition to one goal, Messi also assisted Enzo Fernandez to score a curve ball in the final moments of the game.

According to the official statistics of the FIFA World Cup, with this assist, Messi became the first player to have assists in 5 consecutive World Cups.

  Due to the upset loss to Saudi Arabia in the first game, the Argentine team has been pushed to the edge of the cliff.

In this campaign, facing Mexico, which has its own "knockout physique", the Argentine team did not have an advantage after the opening, and did not organize a decent offense throughout the first half.

  The turning point of the game came in the 63rd minute when Messi broke the deadlock with a low shot from outside the penalty area and pulled Argentina back from the brink.

This is Messi's eighth World Cup goal, tying the legendary Maradona.

  Then in the 87th minute, Messi assisted Enzo Fernandez to score and seal the victory.

After getting the precious three points, the Argentine team regained the initiative to advance.
