Messi’s hero scored a goal against his own team, know who is this Argentine ‘villain’

Al Rayyan (Qatar): In football, a player who concedes a goal against his own team is considered a criminal, much more than in cricket for dropping a catch. Something similar happened with Enzo Fernandez of Argentina in the match against Australia. The Argentina team, captained by Lionel Messi, entered the quarter-finals with a 2–1 win against Australia in the pre-quarter-finals. However, all three goals scored in this match were in the name of Argentine players. That is, even the one goal that Australia had was not scored by its player.

Enzo Fernandez scored against his own team

In the second half of the match, Craig Goodwin kicked from outside the D and Enzo Fernandez tried his best to stop him, but the ball touched him and went into the goal post. In this way he scored against his team. There was also a chance for Australia here, but he could not take advantage of this goal. Australia lost the final and were eliminated from the tournament.

Messi and Alvarez were the heroes of Argentina’s victory

Lionel Messi scored first for Argentina in the 35th minute and Julián Álvarez in the 57th minute of the match, giving them a 2–0 lead. When an own goal from Goodwin made the score 2–1, it remained so until the end of the match. Messi now has 3 goals to his name and remains in the race for the Golden Boot.

Graham Arnold praised Australian players

On the other hand, Australia’s manager Graham Arnold praised his players after the match. “I’m proud of the effort everyone has made for me and the country,” Arnold said. He played well, it has been his journey for four and a half years. It has been a tough journey. We feel we could have got more out of this.

Arnold said his players were both happy and disappointed to miss out on becoming the first Australian team to reach the quarter-finals of football’s showpiece tournament. His team reached the last-16 for the first time since 2006 and became the first Australian team to win two consecutive matches in the World Cup.
