Lionel Messi is not Worried for No Goal Yet
In the group stage of World Cup 2010, Argentina has scored 7 goals in 3 matches but not a single one came from the legs of their top player and striker Lionel Messi. It is a sad news for millions of fans of this player around the word. However, Messi himself is not worried or unhappy. Instead, he just wants his team to win the world cup.
In this World Cup so far, Messi got a lot of opportunities but he was just unlucky not to score a goal yet. He created many opportunities for his teammates and he had direct or indirect assistance in at least 5 of the 7 goals. Until the start of the world cup, there was a lot of criticism against him that he gave his best for Barcelona but he never worked hard for the national team. However, in FIFA 2010 South Africa, he has been able to silence his critics at home and abroad even without scoring a goal in 3 matches.
In the last match of the group stage, Argentina played against Greece without 7 of their regular players. Messi was the captain for the match and under his captaincy, Argentina won by 2-0.
Thus, Lionel Messi is doing the thing he is supposed to do- to help his team win. He is not worried for getting goals and it shows that he has the right mentality.
Messi said to the media, "I am not worried about it. Obviously I'd prefer them to go in, but it's not a big deal," he said.
What's important is that we keep playing well and that the team wins. With a bit of luck, I'll score against Mexico."
Yes, a bit of luck is the thing Messi needs at this moment. He is trying hard and hopefully, he will score a goal in Argentina vs Mexico match....being a human...
