The Barcelona star encouraged his Argentina colleagues to concentrate on « the positive things » following a 2-0 annihilation to Colombia in their Copa America opener.
Also, Argentina chief Messi – who was to a great extent quelled via Carlos Queiroz’s men as he eyes his first senior title with the South American goliaths – deplored the outcome. « We leave here inclination unpleasant, » Messi told columnists a short time later. « In the second half we got our opportunities. « It requires investment to acknowledge this thrashing, yet how about we see what the following days will resemble. We have to take a gander at the skyline and proceed onward. « We would not like to begin along these lines, clearly, however at this point we need to lift our heads and continue onward. » « In the principal half we withdrew a little and were hanging tight, however in the second we truly opened up, » said Messi, who nearly broke the stop in the second half yet coordinated a header only wide of the post. « At whatever point you lose it’s hard for us, we more often than not take it gravely. Presently we need to consider Paraguay. » Messi proceeded: « We need to take the positive things of today and consider tomorrow. We have numerous odds. » Argentina – looking for their first real global title since 1993 – are back in real life against Paraguay on Wednesday in Group B.
