The Argentina soccer idol, Lionel Messi said his country’s shock loss to Saudi Arabia was a “very heavy blow” but, however vowed that, the South American champions would bounce back from the defeat.
According to him, “It’s a very heavy blow, a defeat that hurts, but we must continue to have confidence in ourselves,” Messi said after Argentina crashed to a stunning 2-1 loss in Group C.
“This group is not going to give up. We will try to beat Mexico,” he added.
Messi gave Argentina an early 10th-minute lead from the penalty spot on Tuesday at the Lusail stadium but second-half goals from Saleh Al-Shehri and Salem Al-Dawsari helped the Saudis pull off one of the greatest shocks in World Cup history.
