They face each other in Argentina-Chile. The duels between La Albiceleste and La Roja always find them as protagonists. But they were also companions. Lionel Messi and Arturo Vidal met on the Barcelona squad between 2018 and 2020. And there they built a friendship.
That is why after the 1-1 draw for the first date of the Copa América that takes place in Brazil, King and Leo exchanged T-shirts and hugged each other warmly.
And Vidal did not miss the opportunity to express his admiration for the Argentine captain through his social networks: “Soccer gave me everything. I lived many experiences, I won titles, I visited many countries, I played in the best clubs in the world. Also soccer He gave me a good future for my family. But the most beautiful thing he gave me are friends! How nice to see you always @leomessi: extraterrestrial !!!
