Messi reacts as Argentina win second international trophy within one year
Argentina captain, Lionel Messi has reacted to his country’s 3-0 win over Italy in the 2022 Finalissima on Wednesday.
The victory meant Albiceleste lifted their second international trophy within a year.
The South American nation ended their 18-year drought with silverware, when they won the Copa America title in July 2021.
That title ensured their participation in the 2022 Finalissima against Italy, the European champions.
Lautaro Martinez, Angel Di Maria and Paulo Dybala all scored for Argentina at Wembley, with Messi playing a crucial role.
After the game, Messi said: “It was a beautiful final, full of Argentinians. What we experienced here was beautiful.
“We knew it was going to be an attractive game and a nice setting to be champion.
“We can compete against anyone. Today it was a good test because Italy is a great team.”
