The Argentina National Team qualified for the 2022 World Cup thanks to Chile’s defeat against Gustavo Alfaro’s Ecuador, so there could be no celebration on the court, after the draw with Brazil and Lionel Messi expressed his happiness for the goal achieved on social networks .
Just hours after the South American classic in San Juan, the Argentine captain, already back in Paris, described the pass to Qatar as “the icing on the cake of a very special year” with the National Team, which also broke the very long 28-year streak without titles with the Copa América in Brazil.
Leo was more involved than ever in this process and he always wanted to be there and now, that the year for the Albiceleste is over, he stressed that he should focus on Paris Saint Germain.
Here is Messi’s full message:
“I just landed in Paris with the immense joy of having achieved the goal of qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar. It is without a doubt the icing on the cake in a very special year that we live with our National Team. Thank you again for all the love you always give us. In January, God willing, we will see each other again. Now it is time to change the focus because I also continue to want to continue fighting to achieve the objectives that we set here with PSG and I want to continue focused working to achieve it.
There is barely a month and a half until 2022 and I would like to end this year in the best possible way and with more good times that we can achieve in France. Hug everyone !!! “
The Argentine National Team will return to activity in January 2022, with the penultimate double date of the South American Qualifiers.
