The image surprises, impacts. Once again Lionel Messi is the protagonist of the photo. Again he appears surrounded by rival players, magnetized by the figure of 10 from Argentina. But this time, unlike other images where Leo was without a chance to unbalance, now it is different: with the ball on the edge of the rival area, there are seven players from Uruguay who are watching him, as if seduced by his game. Messi put them together, unloaded to one side and the play ended in Lautaro Martínez's goal for 3-0.
The complete sequence of the action led to the third Argentine goal, which justified the difference in the result already in the second half, when it was the clear dominator of the match.
People cheer him one, two, ten, a thousand times. He looks for it, looks at it, enjoys it. But be careful, because he also fills up with that energy and enjoys a special moment. Lionel Messi's relationship with Argentine fans is at its peak, on a honeymoon that should be eternal. Or some of that wants the 10. "I hope this communion with people lasts a long time," he pleaded after the show vs. Uruguay.
"The people is impressive, it is increasingly beautiful to be able to live and enjoy this. The communion between the team and the people makes them help us, that they take us when things go wrong. Now luckily things come face to face and it is easier, with the clean and jerk", declared a happy and emotional Messi, but this time without tears. "Today I am calmer," he warned, with a smile.
