This is Lionel Messi’s Biggest Regret When Argentina Wins the 2022 World Cup

This is Lionel Messi’s biggest regret when he led Argentina to win the 2022 World Cup. Winning a prestigious event like the World Cup turned out to be a big regret for Lionel Messi.

Lionel Messi expressed this regret in an interview with Radio Urbana Play Buenos Aires. The Argentina national team captain felt sorry for the conflict that occurred in the Argentina vs Netherlands match.

The match sparked a number of controversies. Including Lionel Messi’s celebration in front of the Dutch coach, Louis Van Gaal. At that time, Lionel Messi scored from the spot. He cupped his hands to his ears facing Louis Van Gaal.

In the quarterfinal match between the two teams, Argentina came out victorious. The victory was the result of a penalty shootout 4-3 after ending 2-2 for 120 minutes.

After the game, Lionel Messi insulted Dutch striker Wout Weghorst by gesturing to the bench. Wout Weghorst at that time scored two goals in that match.

The Manchester United player expressed disappointment over Lionel Messi’s actions. On this broadcast, Lionel Messi gave an explanation for his actions.

“I react like that. There’s a lot to do with this cast, tense moments like this. I have mixed feelings, it just happened at that time,” explained Lionel Messi over his controversy with Wout Weghorst.

Lionel Messi himself is very sorry if he returns to remembering his controversy with the Dutch national team. He doesn’t like things he shouldn’t do.

“I don’t like what I did, I don’t like what happened after,” he added.

“These are times full of tension, a lot of anxiety. It’s very fast and people react the way they react. Nothing was planned, everything just happened,” said the player nicknamed La Pulga.

Even so, Lionel Messi admitted he was annoyed by Louis Van Gaal’s words. According to him, Louis Van Gaal should not insult the Argentina national team. In fact, Louis Van Gaal is a leading football coach.

“It was the worst game we played because everything is involved in winning it or not,” said Lionel Messi.

The winner of seven Ballon d’Or trophies said that the match against the Netherlands was the worst match. That is Lionel Messi’s one biggest regret as Argentina wins the 2022 World Cup.
