The tickets to see the National Team, in the meeting that will rediscover the Albiceleste with its public, were sold out in an hour. Messi is aware of the fervor generated by the American champion: “We are seeing that everything is crazy, it is a pity that it cannot be a full stadium because of what is happening in the world with the pandemic.

In a very reflective place of the Argentine, during the extensive talk, Messi questioned that look that analyzes an event according to the result, with testimonies of his own experience. “A part of journalism treated us as failures, they said that we did not feel the shirt, they asked us not to play any more in the National Team,” he recalled. We try to do our best, to be champions, we were the first to want to be. Not everything happens to win or lose. It is very difficult to win a World Cup or a Copa América. We always believe that we are the best in the world and we have to start by recognizing that we are not the best. There are other very good selections. We have to start with that humility, with work, with always giving our best and growing. We were not the worst before for losing the finals and now we are not the best. We were lucky to win the Copa América but we have to keep growing. Sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn’t. The important thing is to leave everything and be satisfied that you gave everything. Unfortunately, only one wins: reaching the final of a World Cup or a Copa América is no small thing. That, at that time, was not appreciated; on the contrary, it was pointed out that we had not met the objective. “

The present allows Messi, who gave so many joys, to reap his own with the albiceleste shirt, with the title won at Maracana. But sports is not the only satisfaction that the glory achieved in the Copa América left him. An intimate scene, from his days since then, is one of the greatest joys that Rosario has: “My children sing the songs of Argentina all the time, they remember the final against Brazil. It is spectacular, for me to see, how they enjoy that. “
