Lionel MESSI’s AFA statement

Lionel Messi Sergio Aguero

Lionel MESSI took to Instagram to post a picture and a comment about the AFA.

The team is still in Texas and has not yet left for New Jersey for the Copa America final. The flight was apparently delayed and MESSI posted the following on Instagram:

Instagram Messi

The message at the bottom reads:
“Once again waiting on the plane to get to our destination. My God, what a mess the AFA is.”

The AFA sent out a statement indirectly responding to MESSI, pointing the blame to bad weather and to the organizers of the Copa.

The larger picture of MESSI’s comments are more than just about the flight but about the AFA. Anyone who knows anything about the Argentinian FA know that they are absolutely corrupt.

    We knew it from the beginning of copa that tata has. taken injuries within the squad.
    But forget about this as Argentina still have the fire power in starting xi
    though reserve bench little weak after those players ruled out. …still we have Aguero-a great forward in epl

    I think Messi will score lots of goals

    Can we shut up already about faith, gods and mindless holy ego wars?.. I watch futbol because its rules are logical and fit on one page where everyone understands and agrees on the same rules. Lets talk about futbol! its a futbol blog. The only god here is Diego and the only saint is Messiah.

      Yes I agree we shouldn’t talk about faith and I also didn’t want to talk about it but had to reinforce the betting part, just wanted to state that I don’t do bets.
      You ended up contradicting yourself though!
      If Maradona is GOD then why are we not winning titles.
      yeah logic, keep talking football.

    “I’ve always watch Argentina games by myself, never like watching Argentina games with anyone, not even my wife 🙂 The nervousness and fear of losing is why I’m like this”

    me too. I never ever watched Argentina with girlfriend, friends… They would not have understood me in that moment… It’s too important. Not only a football game. It’s my sacrum.

    You can’t claim you’re fasting and praying then use swear words and profanity then expect anyone to take you serious. Better yet, asking God to forgive ”delusional” people is not how you reach out to others. You need forgiveness yourself, before coming to Mundo and telling people how holy you are.

    I have been devoted Christian all my life; never smoke, don’t drink, never had sex outside of marriage, don’t use curse words, don’t buy lottery tickets, never gamble and the list goes on. This doesn’t mean I’m perfect, but for me, I’ve live by faith all my life, been in multiple car accidents and God took me out without a scratch. There were a few life and death situation where God took me out of which I will forever give him praise up to this day. A lot of you folks come on the internet and act as if you know people by typing from your IPhone or Android. I react and reply to what people say in their comments, I never go beyond that, never get personal with anyone.

    I’ve always watch Argentina games by myself, never like watching Argentina games with anyone, not even my wife 🙂 The nervousness and fear of losing is why I’m like this, but you know what, I will be going to my brother house this weekend to watch the game. For the first time, I feel confident and relax that I can watch the game with family and friends knowing I won’t be fretting, sweating and being nervous over the game. I have been relaxing through this whole 2016 Copa America unlike the 2014 world cup where even Iran made me sweat and get nervous, same for Jamaica (of all teams) at the 2015 Copa America. It’s not the same with this tournament, the day when Argentina defeat Chile without Messi, change the whole outlook of this tournament for me. I’ve said this on the old Mundo website, that if Argentina win against Chile without Messi, this will allow Messi to come back to a confident playing team, and this is exactly what happen. The players and coaching staff are confident which gives me a lot of confidence in the team. This is all I need, I was never happy with the opening game against Bosnia at the world cup, since that game, Argentina never took off in the entire tournament when it comes to scoring goals, this poor form follows the team all the way to the final, lack of goal scoring confidence lost us the world cup.

    I’ll leave with this, Argentina is averaging 3.5 goals a game throughout this Copa, any team that is going to beat Argentina at this year Copa will need to score 3-4 goals. Worst case scenario, with the form Argentina is in, even if the game goes into extra time, I don’t see this Argentina team scoring less than 3-4 goals over 90/120 minutes. If I want to read negativity about Argentina, I go to or Bleacher Report where all the online trolls are located. On those two sites is where you find people hating on Argentina just because they don’t want Messi to win a final, I never seen such hate like this, it’s like these people are so obsessed with Messi, they come off as online wackos. This is the difference with Brazil and Argentina fans, even with the average team Brazil had at Copa, their fans expect them to win every game against the likes of Peru, Ecuador etc. All this after a 7-1 humiliated lost at the 2014 world cup. Now me as an Argentina supporter is witnessing this Argentina national team playing some of its best attacking and team oriented football since I have been watching the team over the years should all of a sudden go into panic mode? All of this because we are playing against a Chilean team that haven’t scored more than one goal against us like forever? Argentina used their bench team to defeat Bolivia without Messi starting with a comfortable 3 – 0 score line victory while Chile with Vidal and Alexis Sanchez leading Chile needed a controversial penalty to get by Bolivia. Let’s be honest here, suppose it was Argentina who needed a controversial pk to win in a tight game against a weak Bolivian team, how would you guys react? Simple; ‘’fire’’ Tata, Higuaín is ‘’rubbish,’’ Messi not showing is ‘’Barcelona form,’’ Di Maria the ‘’headless chicken’’etc. and me would be calling every single one of the players a ballerina 🙂 What more can I possible ask of this team that scored 18 goals and conceded only 2 goals? If Argentina continue to do what they have been done in their last five games, I have no doubt they will win on Sunday. It’s not ‘’delusional’’ to think highly of the team you support.

      I have the same kind of feeling of confidence that you have. I hope you enjoy watching the game with your family.

      I had the same feelings of dread for the 2015 Copa and the 2014 WC as well. But these guys are playing as a TEAM! If someone is having a bad game, Tata has been great with substitutions. And the rest of the players will step up.

      In futbol there is always a chance that your team loses. But I don’t even want to worry about that until 70 minutes into the game. If we are losing at that time, I will start to fret, etc. Right now I’m enjoying being confident and excited.

      Look man I will try to reason with you.
      I am not a holy man, like any human being I make mistakes which I try to correct.
      come on, be serious if there is anyone who attacks people’s opinion and gets personal with them it’s you just ask “Jason” recently! and don’t deny it because I can dig in the comments and show you!

      I must say I’m surprised to read that you don’t watch games with anyone because you are nervous and fear of losing.
      Look at the end of the day this is just a game and if other people taunt you after losing it is nothing…It’s just football don’t take this that serious.
      My brothers and some friends tease me when Argentina lose and I laugh it off, so what it is just fun.
      Watch your game with your family or friends it is fun, it is not life or death.

      Like I said there is nothing wrong being optimistic, like you I am optimistic about this tournament. there is also nothing wrong with being realistic or pessimistic because some of us support the team for a long and our team has let us down many times so what’s wrong with that?
      Being COCKY is not good!

      I hope we are going to win, celebrate it don’t gloat.

    I’m personally fed up with much of the negativity around here.
    The team will continue to do what it’s been doing with or without the injured players.

    ARGENTINA Already beat Chile twice since Copa, and without Messi who’s been on fire as of late.
    They are NOT the better team and they have injuries of their own as well.
    What they do have is a false sense of achievement, beating a sorry Mexican team who was practically playing at home and a Colombian team who quickly lost thier focus early but still managed to be the better team on attack despite the score.

    ARGENTINA is hungry, and Messi loves playing here, I remember looking at him during the Chile game, you could clearly see the twinkle in his eyes, a sense of excitement and I have never seen that look on his face ever before HE WANTS TO DO GOOD NOW.

    GOD WILLING, ARGENTINA WILL BE VICTORIOUS and we will all celebrate like we never did before.

    You have got to believe and I DO.

      I like your lineup, but I would switch Aguero for Lamela. Just because of how he plays from midfield.

  16. Profile photo of NoHateOnlyLoveNoHateOnlyLove

    Croatia lost Modric for the rest of the Euros, and did not have both him and Manddzukic (arguably two of the best players on the Croatian team) for the game against Spain and they still won. A team win tournaments not individuals, depending on one player does not work in modern football. If anything you can take from the Europeans, especially the minnow NT teams, is that team work is better than having one Drama queen or Diva on your team. Look at Wales, they’re playing as a team, not just depending on Gareth Bale to win them games. So my takeaway from this year Copa America with regards to Argentina is that they’re finally stepping up and playing as a unified team. If it was up to Lavezzi, I know he would still want to play despite him wearing a plaster cast on his arm from the injury he had the other day.

    This goes to the fans in here!
    Where is the class of our supporters?
    Is being arrogant and ignorant a quality you need to be a real fan?
    According to some of you that is what a real fan is!
    I dare anyone of you that are saying we are going to win 100% to prove it!!!
    I am a Muslim fasting right so don’t encourage betting, but some if you have any balls and are so sure we are going to win then sell everything you got and put a bet on Argentina winning and make a pic to prove it so we can see how tough and how sure you are!!!!!!
    Don’t come to me with empty words —> show and prove!
    1 euro or dollar doesn’t count, BET ALL OF YOUR BELONGINGS or half of it if you are so sure!

    I am a humble person and my opinion is that Argentina will win, it would be a travesty if we lose, then again it is proven that we lost many finals and important games.
    I think we will win, I hope we win, but I can’t guarantee anything.
    Be humble man people like you who predict and guarantee games before they happened and were proven wrong make us all look bad.
    we don’t know each other in real life, I can tell you lies and you can’t prove if they are true or false.
    But I choose to be sincere even if you don’t know me, all I am is a Teacher who supports Argentina surely more than you.
    since the tournament started I slept 2-4 hours a day, staying up -> watch the game -> sleep 2 hours -> wake up -> got to work!
    this is the sacrifice I make to support the team, so get the f out with your real fan talk because if I would so many wrong predictions like some of you who have guaranteed us titles that never materialized then I would never post in here because of shame.
    some people simply have no shame.

    there is nothing wrong with believing in the team because we have the talent. there is nothing wrong with being critical because first you want the team to improve and second we have f up many times. but everything is wrong with being delusional.

    be humble and don’t count the chicken before they hatch. if we win be gracious and don’t lose your mind and if we lose be self-critical and improve next time.
    you can’t claim to be right when you are always wrong.

    Vamos Argentina please God forgive the delusional people and let us win the cup.

      Kudos to you my friend for these wise words. Hopefully come sunday we will be the Champion of Americas!

      Everybody have their preferences in life and they should be. If I say I do not like Biglia playing our CM with Mascherano that does not mean I hate Biglia or this team or anything. If I say I don’t like Tata Martino’s tactics that also does not mean I do not love this team.

      It’s seems like we are here to justify others that someone is a bigger supporter of this team than the others, which should never be the case. We are all here to support one team and that is Argentina.

      As one of the people who wants to look at the team in a positive light, I don’t come to Mundo to read depressing things. I come for information and news, as well as to get excited discussing the possibilities of our next game. For that reason, I really don’t enjoy the posts that talk about how they are sure we are going to lose. I don’t mind some real talk. It is worrisome that we have so many injuries right now. I’m especially worried about Biglia being too defensive. But predicting we will lose? It’s just a huge downer. Why not be excited and hopeful now, before the game, and save any negativity in case we lose. Why focus on the negative when there is a real possibility that it won’t be necessary?

      On that note, I am so excited for this game. I think Messi is feeling how he has in the year after Barca lost the league. He is hungry and determined. I see that look in so many faces on the team, and I see everyone willing to sacrifice for the team. No games, no trying for glory. They are all players doing well at their clubs. No one is trying to impress for a transfer, they are all focused on their one goal, win the COPA!

      thank you guys.
      having different opinions creates a better discussion, we are are not authoritative to have the same opinion. people have favorite players so do I. We are all in here together and i can honestly say there is no one that wants Argentina to lose. We only differ on how we approach the team, some are confident, some are wait and see and some are pessimistic because of past failures.
      I hope we are going to win, celebrate.

      It is true we have many things in common, like I said I have polish friends because I lived 8 years in Germany hopefully Poland does also well at the Euro’s.

    I neither confident nor pessimistic about the final this time. I have been a supporter since 1988. I have seen Argentina senior team reach 10 finals since 1990, and won 3 (COPA 91,93 and Confed Cup 92), if I have to add the Confederations Cup.

    Luck has deserted us in the final many times. Although I believe that teams must make their own luck, I just hope the the stars are aligned for us come Sunday.

    Reaching the final does not boost my confidence or optimism anymore even though everything is looking good so far.

    In the wake of all these injuries, here’s something that will pep all of you up…
    In the movie “Rush (2013)” Ferrari driver and reigning world champion of 1975 Niki Lauda tells his wife (as they were rejoicing their recent wedding and happiness) — “Happiness is your biggest enemy. It weakens you. Puts doubts in your mind. Suddenly you have something to lose.”

    So you know a little less happiness just before the big day is not a bad thing you see. We were all extremely happy with all the big wins and suddenly these injuries…it’s not a bad thing after all it will bring more focus and teamwork. Vamos Argentina !

    *I mean: Lamela – show me I’m wrong.

  24. Profile photo of GonzaloGonzalo

    Yes, I see Lamela as our weak link.
    Even against less strict teams than CHile he had a lot of losts and played with hesitate.
    I don’t see this player as part of our future NT. Not only because we have Messi and then Dybala on his natural position Just my current opinion. It doesn’t matter. But the most important is next game. Lamela – let me show I’m wrong. We still may win without Di Maria, Lavezzi or Gaitan.

      This “weak” link already score 2 goals at tournament…gonzalo..will you please tell me..who is mauricio martinez

      1. Profile photo of GonzaloGonzalo

        Long time ago I was mentioned him here.
        Tall guy from Union Santa Fe. DM who gives some contribution to attack. Sometimes scoring.

        But I’m surprised he will be there. Especially if Martinez will take place for Ascacibar. Martino may consider 19 years old Ascacibar as inexperienced. Besies Estudiantes needs him for league and Copa Libertadores.

        Espinoza is next surprise for me. Actually I don’t like this kind of players rather.

        1. Profile photo of GonzaloGonzalo

          I’m afraid not only Dybala but also Funes Mori, Cervi, Pavon, Batalla and perhaps Kranevitter will not get a permission from their clubs.

        2. Profile photo of GonzaloGonzalo

          I like Martinez very much but in one of the last games of season, Estudiantes – Union, Ascacibar proved his superiority to Martinez directly.

  25. Profile photo of RichardRichard

    If only Martino had taken Dybala instead of the injured Pastore…

  26. Profile photo of RichardRichard

    With all these injuries we must rethink our strategy.
    How about putting Higuain and Messi upfront in a 4-4-2 formation?
    Mercado – Otamendi – Cuesta – Funes Mori
    Biglia – Mascherano – Kranevitter – Banega
    Messi – Higuain

    This formation could suck up the pressure from Chile and play a quick counter attack. We could swap Lamela for Biglia if thing do not go our way.

    1. Profile photo of EnganCheEnganChe

      Richard, that is an extremely defensive line-up 🙂 Masche, Krane and Biglia all at once? Besides neither Biglia nor Banega are wingers. Keep in mind Mercado, Rojo and especially Funes Mori are not really full-backs, they just happen to play in those positions which means that they are much better defensively than offensively. Let’s not be too afraid of Chile 🙂

      1. Profile photo of RichardRichard

        EnganChe, you’re right but I think counter attack is the best way to beat Chile. Playing a high line could result in counter attacks by Chile and Vargas scoring on breaks. 442 will give us plenty of power in midfield and with 4 players able to capture balls we need one or two passes to get pipita and messi in the Chile box.

  27. Profile photo of EnganCheEnganChe

    I remain cautiously optimistic. Lamela is not the only option for the left wing, Aguero can play there too, he did under Sabella when the fabulous four played 4-3-3 with Kun on the left. Augusto will be missed because he offers more of a direct threat going forward in addition to his defensive abilities but Biglia has played in two finals already, he’s an experienced player.

    Mascherano and Biglia should be more than enough to stop Vidal in the centre. We must pay close attention to Alexis and Vargas, our back four has to be careful. If Marcelo Diaz does not start for Chile that would be a huge plus for us cause he is a tough defensive mid.

  28. Profile photo of CleanballCleanball

    Let us not be too worry with the injured players as we have the same level player on the bench; Lamela, Biglia,Kranevitter and Kun are available; i still have faith on them; Kun can play alongside Higuain if Di Maria and Lamela are not available. Biglia can replace Augusto and works well with Messi; Mascherano and Banega can stop Vidal. The burden is on Chile shoulders how to stop Messi and friends

    The team are in good shape, time to lift and bring home the trophy. Vamos

    1. Profile photo of MustB-AlbicelesteMustB-Albiceleste

      Messi-Kun-Higuain would have been a perfect trio in upfront.

      BUT we can afford to start both Kun and Higuain together as they both have the tendency to miss out in big games? I will rather start with Lamela (if Di Maria is not fit) for his hard work and fitness. Also he had played quite a few minutes and scored 2 goals as well. In that case we will have an good option in Kun on bench. We have a very thin bench and we need some x-factor on bench, so is Kun.

      On another thought, Kun plays his best with a no 9 (so Higuain is there) and again Messi-Higuain link up really well. So If Messi-Banega drop deeper and take the creative responsibility and Mascherano-Bigila hold the defensive line, in that case it won’t be a bad idea to start Messi-Kun-Higuain.

      This is what you will face when you carry so many injured players. Not even a single minute for Pastore 🙁 Hope Di Maria will start at least from bench and no mater who will play we will win..

      1. Profile photo of Archangel GabrielArchangel Gabriel

        Until now you are still in doubt with Higuain?

        He has already scored 4 goals in the last 2 matches and he has borken the Serie A scoring record which Batistuta failed to break.

        He has worked very hard and changed his diet in order to gain his best form in his career today. I think he just does not want to miss another vital chance again in the important matches.

        No matter what happens on sunday, I am sure he will try his best, he is the best number 9 we have now, he deserves our respect.

        Or there is a thing or strategy call defence. Or better way a WELL BALANCED team. I think we have perfectly well blanched team after long time.

    Lavezzi – Out
    Gaitan – Out
    Agusto – Out
    Pastore – Out
    Di Maria – Out
    Rojo – Probably Out

    Chile – All fit, no suspension, Vidal will be back for final, playing great at the moment. Most importantly momentum is with them.

    Still this is now or never for us. This is the match that will stamp on Lionel Messi era, this is a match that will define the fortune of this great generation, this is the match that will evantually help us to build the foundation of World Cup 2018. No way we can afford to lose another final, another loss will simply end every aspects we are looking forward to move ahead.

    I am worried I am seriously scared..but this is a must win for us.

      The thing is most of you guys who have been rooting for Lavezi not to even be in the squad all a sudden started to get worried by his absence.

      Most of us are worried by Lavezi Maria and Pastore even Gaitan selection in the begning and all a sudden they make us feel as if they are our saviours and Chile will bitch us since we miss our weakest links.

      What is wrong with mundo mentality? Things have changed and Argie have declared its redemption from players individual talents and weakness. It is a team that we are having. Can’t u guys see it. I can understand the negativity some funs who root more fore olympic team than this seniour team merely cus they feel like they know the youth more than any fun or some trolls like ASIF who only come here to curse the team in every major tournaments. But from you like Must-Albiceleste I would never expect this fear,worry or negativity.

      Stop this growing mental plague, at least pretend to be indifferent about your worries or anxieties, for the sake of this final, if you guys can’t do it!!!!

      1. Profile photo of MustB-AlbicelesteMustB-Albiceleste

        I don’t think anything wrong as I am not being over confident. Off course I am confident as we still have enough players to beat Chile and we will still start as favorites in final IMO. But you know I am supporting this team since WC 1990 and each time whenever I was looking at the team I always felt good, I always believed that this is the team to beat, we are favorites. But in the end it was always ended with disappointment. I know Messi alone capable of beating Chile and he is playing his best football for Argentina at the moment but then again I think about our past. Even in Copa 2015 Messi was brilliant and made 3 assists but in the final he struggled but again it may not be the case this time and we may be see even better version of messi in final…probably he kept his best game for final. All I am desperately looking for this victory and that’s all. Whether I am optimistic or pessimistic, does it even mater? We are fans… simply fans. That’s all.

      Chile’s Marcelo Diaz and Pablo Hernandez are both in doubt for the final.

      @Must: You’re really here claiming momentum is with Chile? How is this, please explain? Argentina is on a nine game unbeaten run which include only one friendly win yet the momentum is with Chile? Argentina reduce USMNT to ZERO shot on goal for the entire game, when has Chile pull off such feat? THIS IS THE FACT, ARGENTINA PLAYERS ARE BETTER THAN CHILE PLAYERS IN TERMS OF STARTING XI AND DEPTH ON THE BENCH. Firstly, Messi was never in this condition going into any of the 2014 & 2015 finals. I wish Messi was in this shape at the 2014 world cup, by the time he reaches the finals, Messi had no legs. In the 2015 Copa, Messi was struggling to score goals, couldn’t even score a tap in against Colombia, and furthermore, Messi team mates wasn’t passing the ball to him so he could have the chance to score. This year Copa is different, Argentina finally have a team, not a bunch of individuals. It’s team work that carry us to this year Copa final not pure individual brilliance. You always seem to be cheering for the other team, always something wrong with Argentina, but the other teams are just fine, no need for them to worry about poor Messi and co because they have the ”momentum” according to you. We know Argentina lost finals before, but at the same time, Argentina is a country with two world cups, 14 Copa America, and two Olympic championships. How does a team that have only beaten Argentina 7 times out of 88 times has the momentum? How does a team that only beat us once in open play, and that was back in 2008 (under Diego Maradona incompetency), by one goal, has ”momentum” over Argentina? How is it that a team that haven’t win against us in regular time football in the last five meetings has ‘’momentum’’ over us? It’s good to have facts to back up your claim instead of throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks.

    Can any one stop Tata boys in this tournament? Nope, even AFA couldn’t do it this time. The players are determined than ever. I have a feeling in this final, though AGUERO will be different regardless of the minutes he will get to play. He along with Leo are going to cause a damage that Chili will never be able to forget.

    I have no scintilia of doubt about it;as long as the team sprite is there. After all, this tournament have never been about any of our super stars. It was about the team. No Messi no problem No Maria no problem either no Aguero no problem no Augusto(vs Panama in second half, the only team to really challenge Argentina in this copa so far) not only were no problem it solved the problem.

    The team sprite that Tata managed to infuse is the finding of this copa; is not about Leo’s or Banega’s brilliance any more it is all about ARGENTINA and ARGENTINA AND ARGENTINA……

    Who ever is playing will fit the team with out necessasarily replacing the player missing. I don’t think that Gaitan has playeda quarter of Leo’s brilliance against Chile yet he played as Gaitan persea for the out come and he was perfect even more in the latter games with out being Di Maria either till he got injured. The rule is uniform to every player coming be it Lamela, Biglia or Krane vitter and Aguero. They will play to their limit but to wards one end i.e the team very confidently in fact.

    It is the synergic play of the team that makes us look as if 16/17 players are wearing the white and blue/blue black Jersey every time we destroy teams with a large margin of goals and possession so far in this copa. None of the scores were about individual moments except for Bati goal record breaking free kicks w/c btw will also be available in a more motivated sprite on Sunday too.

    Go Tata and maintain the team sprite you built against any one’s expectation also destroy and record a hatrick win against the team that you have beaten two times in a raw in 2016 including in its stadium in a very faire play last March and very recently in this tournament.

    But as i have said it my instnict is pushing me to single out one player to make the diffeference in this final…Sergio Aguerooooooo..

    “Once again…..” these two simple words says it all.

    AFA- Can’t even manage to make a neutral election for their own president. How can anyone expect they’ll run Argentinian football without corruption? Shame on you, Afa!
