The 1000th party of Messi it couldn’t be more full of memorable moments. Of course, just by being in this match, he had already reached a mark that not everyone can boast. If the result is added to that Argentina 2-1 over Australia that gives him the pass to the quarterfinals of Qatar 2022where he also scored the first goal, could not have a more perfect ending.
The truth is that from before starting the comparison it was already seen that the good vibes was on his side. In the tunnel that connects the court with the dressing rooms, prior to the hymn ceremony, a little girl could not contain the emotion of having one of the living and action legends of world football so close and he caught her attention as only someone his age can: direct and without excuses.
Beyond greeting him, the girl left an image that, without knowing it, would go around the world. She just wanted to wish him luck, with both thumbs up, causing the smile of the Argentinian star who came out on the field in fire.
In Argentina vs Australia it was notable that we saw Messi enjoying what he does, scoring in the style that has marked him so much, and assisting the team as far as possible. If anything remained of that black cloud that covered the albiceleste on that fateful day of defeat against Saudi Arabia, that girl completely erased it with that gesture.
