Otamendi might make brainfarts here and there, but he is the boss when he only has to defend the box.
Yeah I just came to write that. De Paul MOTM something I never expected to say, ever.Finally! VAMOS ARGENTINA CARAJO!!
De Paul was amazing tonight.
That goal pretty much sums up why Messi won't be considered the greatest player. At his peak he was unstoppable with Barca, but the great players have to shine in all contexts, club and country.
Our Ronnie is still imo the best player ever.
The thing is he is considered the greatest player.
Messi has been excellent for Argentina on numerous occasions, just none of them has been in a final. The media love to use his less significant stats with Argentina (compare to his Barca stats) to make such conclusions that he's not better than this or that player. He doesnt make stats by just scoring tap ins and penalties, but his impact on his team's goals is huge.Ronnie's resume wasn't long enough due to injuries for that, but I'm more talking about proving yourself in different contexts. He scored 2 WC goals in his a final, won 2 World Cups and UEFA Cup (back when it meant something).
Ronnie was excellent in club and country. Messi has never been excellent for Argentina. At best he was "good".
