Mumbai: Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar congratulates Argentina on winning Copa America 2021. He praised Lionel Messi for his ‘star career’ of winning an international trophy since his debut in 2005.
Argentina beat Brazil 1-0 in the final, where Angel Di Maria scored the only goal of the entire tournament. This is Messi’s first major trophy with Albiceleste. He was close to winning the World Cup in 2018 when Argentina lost to Germany in the final.
Tendulkar wanted Messi, who had been waiting 16 years for his debut to win the Copa America title. He wrote, “Heartfelt congratulations R Argentina In winning #CopaAmericaFINAL. It was a historic victory for all Argentines, and Messi is icing on the cake with such a stellar career. Keep encouraging. “
Funny fact: Both India and Argentina have won the International Cup for their respective countries 28 years apart in the presence of these two legends (Sachin and Messi).
Sachin did not forget to mention another star player, Neymar Jr. of Brazil, who is one of the best players in football.
Another heartbeat that followed Brazilian fans after their infamous 1-7 defeat in the 2014 World Cup semi-final against Germany. But Neymar Jr. is young and could play in two more Copa America matches.
De Maria’s 22nd-minute goal was enough to give Argentina a win. Messi fans around the world are starting to rejoice as GOAT. May win another Ballon d’Or award this year. Although Barcelona have not won La Liga this year, Messi’s performance is one of the best.
