The GOAT in football simple means “The Greatest Of All Time”. Yesterday’s world cup was not very good to all Argentines. After drawing their first match against Iceland, Argentina loss to Croatia yesterday. Neither Messi nor other Argentina stars were anywhere to be found instead Croatian Star player Modric dominated the game.
Argentina hope to qualify now rest on beating Nigeria in their last match and also pray luck for Croatia to defeat or at least draw against Iceland.
Among those disappointed after yesterday’s game was Diego Maradona. When asked by bein Sports on who is the GOAT between Lionel Messi and his rival Cristiano Ronaldo, see Maradona’s response:
“Modric was an excellent. Days like today, I wish players like that were Argentinian. Our leaders are not leaders now. Messi doesn’t have that personality. It’s a shambles. He took pictures with a goat. You’re not the goat. Win something first.”
On Messi and Ronaldo debate, Maradona said: “I did bad things in my life and in my career, but I never took pictures with a goat. Especially when there is another player who many see as greater, you can’t claim to be the greatest and then perform like that.”
“Ronaldo showed the world why he is better than Messi today, and the funny thing is he didn’t even have to kick a ball.” – which he says “settles the debate once and for all.”
Do you agree with Diego Maradona?
