Without a doubt, we will be facing one of the best matches that we will be able to see in the World Cup.
According to estimates from the Argentine embassy in Qatar, between 35 and 40 thousand Argentines were planning to attend the World Cup and support their country in its effort to win the first title since 1986 and the third in the history of tango, which made the fans of the «Albiceleste» the largest in the Qatari capital, along with the fans of Mexico, Saudi Arabia and now Morocco.
Messi and his teammates were supported throughout the tournament by the enthusiasm that poured from the stands and benefited from the advantage of feeling almost as if they were playing on their own soil , with only the Morocco team surpassing them in public support in the Qatari
From the beginning of the twenty-second edition of the finals, the Argentine public was the hallmark in Doha, which was praised by the tango captain, Lionel Messi, when he said after the victory over the Netherlands in the quarterfinals on Sanctions: “ We benefit in these moments from the people who are here and in Argentina, where everyone feels in the ecstasy of victory”.
Battle for Holland
After the scare of losing to Saudi Arabia (1-2) in the Opening, Messi managed to put his country back on the right track and took it to the final round of awards, and then to the quarterfinals, where he faced the Dutch team last Saturday.
Coach Lionel Scaloni’s team looked set to qualify after Nahuel Molina opened the scoring with a perfect pass from Messi , before the latter scored the second penalty goal.
But life returned to the Dutch, thanks to substitute Vout Fijkhorst, who cut the gap in the 83rd minute with a wonderful header, then snatched the equalizer in 11th minute of added time from a deft free-kick.
After that, the two teams resorted to extra time, and there began the spasm and the contacts in a battle that FIFA opened an investigation, after witnessing a total of 18 yellow cards that even affected the two coaching staffs and the players sitting in the on the benches of the fans, including the Dutch star Denzel Dumfries, who received a red card in the last seconds.
And after the end of the physical battle on the pitch, which ultimately saw an Argentine victory on penalties, the confrontations and taunts moved to the side of the stadium, as Messi made his way to the Dutch bench to confront coach Louis van Gaal because he «disrespected» him. me”, according to the Argentine star.
Messi: «I think Van Gaal needs to shut his mouth»
Messi said: «I feel that Van Gaal disrespected me after what he did before the match, and some Dutch players chatted a lot during the match,» referring to what the Mills coach said on the eve of the match about the Argentine star.
Messi responded on Friday by saying: «Van Gaal says to play nice, then he puts the attackers in the penalty area and starts playing long balls towards them,» saying: «We deserved to qualify, and this is what happened.»
And goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez’s tongue was no different from his captain’s, as he said after his brilliance in blocking the first two penalties for the Netherlands: «I heard Van Gaal say we have an advantage on penalties. If we get to penalties, we’ll make it.» I think he needs to shut his mouth.»
The skirmishes and provocations did not end on the pitch , but moved to the mixed media area, where Messi appeared during an interview with the Argentine channel «TYC Sports», addressing someone saying: «What are you looking at, bobo? Get out of here, idiot. Leave away». In the midst of the journalist’s astonishment, he turned to the Argentine star and said: «Calm down, Leo, calm down.»
Later it was learned that Messi’s words were directed at Fichhorst , who seemed to want to reach the Argentine to exchange peace with him, but the path was not clear at all, since the Argentines showered him with insults, including that of former top scorer . Sergio Agüero, who appeared in a video addressing the Dutchman saying in English: «Shut up, shut up.»
And when the Dutch giant explained what he wanted, Italian Inter striker Lautaro Martínez, who arranged the penalty shootout that decided his country’s victory, appeared to be the most diplomatic, reassuring the Dutchman and extending his hand before he could Agüero reluctantly joined. He, while Lisandro Martínez refused to join them and went on his way muttering in Spanish.
we needed to gamar
Friday’s game was not normal in every way, but in the end Argentina reached the semifinals for the fifth time in its history, which was crowned with two titles in 1978 when they defeated the Netherlands in particular, and 1986 when they defeated the legend Diego Maradona . West Germany, and the second in the last three editions.
As for Messi: «Argentina showed from one match to another that they know how to play. We played with drive and desire and we knew how to face the (important) moments of the match”, and he stressed: “We needed that and we are happy that the whole country is celebrating”.
Like Argentina, Croatia qualified for the semifinals thanks to the brilliance of their goalkeeper Dominik Levakovic in the penalty shootout against Brazil, and it will be the penultimate obstacle between Messi and the dream of conquering the expected title when he meets her on Tuesday. at the Lusail Stadium, in a match that brings him together with his former rival at Real Madrid Luka Modric.
How does Croatia arrive?
Dreams collide with Croatia’s Los Valientes , led by their veteran star Luka Modric, with the ambitions of Argentine star Lionel Messi and their last chance to give their country its first title since 1986, when they meet on Tuesday at the Lusail Stadium in the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup .
When Croatia entered the final of the twenty-second edition, it was out of the count, especially since most of its stars that led it to the 2018 final were elderly, led by captain Modric (37 years old).
But coach Zlatko Dalic’s men defied expectations, leading his country to the third semi-final in 6 appearances, after managing the prize and quarter-final matches with a high fighting spirit that allowed them to make up for their failure against Japan. and then against Brazil in extra time, before settling the matter with a penalty shootout thanks to brilliant goalkeeper Dominic Levakovich.
After a mostly «quiet» ride in the group stage, where Dalic’s men finished second in the Group F competitions behind Morocco with two draws and one win, it was Levakovic’s turn to prevail as champion in the round. awards finale when he broke hearts. of the Japanese in a penalty shootout.
Dalic’s players then knew how to deal with Brazil in the semifinals, and the pressure exerted by Neymar’s teammates in that matchup, so Croatia managed to drag the «Seleção» to penalty kicks, giving the Dynamo Zagreb goalkeeper a new chance to play. The role of the hero, so he was on time from the first penalty, played by the Spanish star of Real Madrid, Rodrigo.
The question arises, on Tuesday, will Messi join his dear friend and Paris Saint-Germain teammate Neymar? Certainly, the Croatian task will certainly not be easy, since the team of coach Lionel Scaloni that goes to penalties may not bear fruit; Because the (twice) world champions have a no less brilliant goalkeeper in their ranks, Emiliano Martínez, who was the champion of the quarterfinals by blocking two penalty kicks for the Dutch team.

The 2018 scenario is far from being achieved
The two sides go back to the memory of the 2018 World Cup in Russia when they met in the group stage , and at that time Croatia achieved a victory that seemed completely unattainable in the current version, as they swept the South American giant with three clean goals. Ante Rebic, Modric and Ivan Rakitic scored.
In that version, Croatia topped the group with a full 9 points, and Messi and his teammates had to wait until the final round to settle their qualification by beating Nigeria 2-1.
And when Croatia reached the semifinals in 1998, in their first World Cup participation after the independence of Yugoslavia, they also beat Argentina, but the result was then in favor of the «Albicelesi» with a goal from Ector Pineda in the group stage.
But Tuesday’s game in Lusail is much more important for both teams . Because the last card is at stake, since Messi seeks to repeat the scenario of 2014, when he led his country to the final for the fifth time in its history after 1930, 1978, 1986 and 1990, with the hope that he will be able to recover from what which they lost 8 years ago when they fell 0-1 to the Germans.
