Lionel Messi was named the Player of the Match as he spoke about the World Cup final.
Messi had one goal and one assist, the assist of the tournament, in Argentina’s 3-0 win vs. Croatia in the semi finals of the World Cup. Speaking to the media after the win, here is what he had to say:
“Many things went through my mind. It’s very exciting to see all of this, the people, the family. The entire World Cup was incredible, what we experienced and now we are going for the last match, which is what we wanted.
“I don’t know if it’s my best World Cup or not. I’ve been enjoying this a lot for a long time. We were confident that this group was going to pull it off. We know what we are and we ask the people to believe in us.
“We have been through tough situations, other very good ones. Today, we are living something spectacular. I’m enjoying it with all of these people and all the Argentines that are in our country. I imagine it has to be crazy.
“We knew were not the top favorites but we were not going to gift anyone anything. We showed it match by match.”
