Rodrigo De Paul spoke after the game and mentioned Messi. De Paul said, "Obviously, it's rare that he's not with us. After many months we really wanted to see each other. We talked a lot, and even after the end of the match, we were talking. He is our captain. Let's hope he recovers and can play as many matches as he wants. The most important thing is that he recovers if he is okay. To compete and be champions in the Copa America we will need him."
