Through the celebrations that the Argentine national team players published after their victory over Mexico with two unanswered goals, it became clear that the "Tango" was carrying a great burden after its loss from Saudi Arabia, and their victory today restored their self-confidence.

This victory translated into smiles, laughter and caresses with the journalists who were gathering in the mixed area of ​​the World Cup "Lucile" stadium, and one scene was remarkable, which was the entry of Rodrigo de Paul alone without Messi, since the first joining the "Alba Celeste" team and he is like his "bodyguard" and does not leave him. Inside or outside the field, and he is the first of his opponents to approach him.

But the reason for the separation of the "two good friends" is because Messi, who scored the first goal and made the second, was in the press conference dedicated to the man of the match, for which Messi won the award.
