Sampaoli Praise Lionel Messi Performance
Despite failing to win in the World Cup qualifier against Uruguay, coach Jorge Sampaoli in particular delivered praise to Lionel Messi.
In the game, Sampaoli played a trio of Lionel Messi, Paulo Dybala, and Mauro Icardi as starters, but the three players failed to break through a defense built by uruguay.
Even so, the coach in particular praised the performance shown by Messi, with him satisfied to see the effort displayed by the player.
“The three of them have tried, and they managed to create opportunities,” the coach told reporters. “There was even a penalty, which the referee had to give to Icardi.”
“Messi has a big part in this game. Throughout the game, we see how to set the course of the match, and present a very good match. “
