Messi 'proud' of being part of Argentina's football squad
Football star Lionel Messi is proud of being part of Argentina’s squad that on Wednesday reached the final stance of the World Cup for the first time in 24 years by beating the Netherlands in penalty kicks.
“I had to have the doping test and could not lived the moment (celebrations) in the locker room. I am proud of being part of the squad. How phenomenal they all are. What a match they played,” Messi wrote in his official Facebook account.
“What a lunacy! We are in the finals. Let’s enjoy it… A big hug to all Argentina. We are one little step away,” Messi, widely considered the best player in the world, added as he uploaded a picture of him at the anti-doping room showing some watery eyes.
