Lionel Messi helped Argentina last night when Gauchos took the 1-0 win over Brazil after a penalty was taken and converted by the captain.
The spirits are high in Argentina after the great victory.
However, the players want more. Messi, at 32 years of age, is ready to play just three days after the Brazil clash.
The Argentinian is notorious for his constant resting in the national team. Despite that, when asked about will he play against Uruguay on Monday, Messi replied:
“If the coach wants, I can play on Monday,” Messi said, according to Marca.
It looks like Argentina is on the right path once again. A lot of youth is emerging for Gauchos led by the determined captain in Messi.
