Glory Was on His Foot

Glory was on his foot and he let it slip away. Was it Messi’s fault that Argentina lost? Certainly not, but fault is irrelevant.

What is relevant is cementing one’s place in history. And Messi had his chance, several times. Argentina played better than Germany but failed to capitalize time and time again.

In the end, Goetze’s remarkable goal in extra time will forever be the iconic moment of this World Cup. The spectacular strike was nothing short of perfect.

Messi’s critics at home may continue to question his greatness and whether he is truly Argentina’s son which is, for lack of a better term, stupid. But the result will forever be, Germany 1 Argentina 0.

Glory was on his foot and it tragically slipped away.

    “Messi almost made Germany look silly.”

    I confident that you’ve watched a different game! Maybe the one 4 years ago? Oh no, that one ended 4:0 for Germany. The one 8 years ago? Perhaps not, also this time Germany advanced against Argentina.
