And yes! We Canadians celebrate a month in advance than Americans because our societies are two different worlds. The Canadian mind is a lot more progressive that even our turkey day is ahead from them. #GoCanada
Back to my post…
Tonight couldn’t have started any worse for Argentina. On the outside looking in at the beginning of the final day of World Cup qualification, they needed a win in Ecuador to at least keep their hopes alive. But within the first minute, the home side delivered a stunning blow, taking a very quick, potentially devastating 1-0 lead.
That goal left Argentina, who had only scored 16 goals in 17 games of qualifying, with the task of getting at least two on the road to avoid national despair and humiliation.
Luckily for them, however, when you have the GOAT, anything is within reach. All it took was 12 minutes for Lionel MESSI to erase the initial damage. The inevitable next goal was 100 percent Messi magic, and it came just eight minutes later, when he stole the ball in a dangerous area, took just one touch to set himself, then fired off an unstoppable shot… and two more later on.
The final score was 3-1 and Messi saved Argentina’s ass!
Argentina have mostly been playing like garbage, but luckily, Leo Messi is not and never will be garbage. Thanks to him, Argentina still finish third in South American qualifying, and Messi is still going to the World Cup.
Everything is as it should be! #VAMOSARGENTINA
