  1. 102 now 20 goals difference hopefully messi will catch ronaldo in future. After the wc i thought that’s the end of ronaldo for Portugal and overtaking him would have been a matter of time but that ex Belgium coach change the condition completely

  2. An easy game with many goals, records and some nice football. Only downside is that Lautaro continues missing sitters.

    Next games in June against Bangladesh and another team. After that the party should stop, several players need to retire and fresh blood should be added to prepare for WC qualifers and Copa 24.

  3. Although Argentina didn’t need Lo Celso at the World Cup they would’ve played much better with him and maybe Messi would have even scored more. His vision and passing are impeccable.
    It’s nice to know we have a future reliable mid-field of Lo Celso, De Paul, Fernandez, Mac Alister, and Almada (still unsure of how good Palacios, Guido are. Paredes is kind of just there is nothing too special about him).

    What we need is to get a new generation of fast wingers who are as good as Theo Hernandez, Pavard, Dumfries, Reece James etc)

  4. Time to play with youngsters now. We need to play at at-least top 30 fifa ranked teams. Build a new team for next world cup. 🇳🇵🇦🇷
