After Argentina fell 2-1 in their opening 2022 FIFA World Cup match against Saudi Arabia, the South American nation was in a must-win situation against Mexico. A loss would have eliminated them, but Lionel Messi put the team on his back.
Following a scoreless first half, Messi used his small space to open up the scoring and give Argentina a 1-0 lead over Mexico. Then the 35-year-old provided the assist on the goal netted by Benfica’s Enzo Fernandez.
Watch the best moments from the Paris Saint-Germain star as his performance gives Argentina some life as they hope to qualify for the knockout stage in their final match against Poland.
