Rafa Marquez warns Mexico Football Team about Lionel Messi

Mexico Football Team qualified after finishing second in their group behind Canada. They had eight wins, two losses, and four matches ending in a draw. The team is now in the group C and will play Poland at their first match on 22nd November.

Rafa Marquez is a former defender for Mexico and Barcelona. He praised Lionel Messi as the best player in the world. He also warned Mexico, who will play Argentina in the 2022 World Cup group stage. Although he mentioned that it is challenging to stop Messi.

Why did Rafa Marquez mentioned that Mexico Football Team needs to play safe?

Between 2004 and 2010, Marquez and Lionel Messi shared a locker room in Barcelona. He has represented Mexico in five FIFA World Cup tournaments and is frequently regarded as El Tri’s all-time best defender. Hence, the Mexico Football Team needs to improve their game.

Marquez is familiar with Messi’s background during their time in Barcelona and against the left-footed star on the international scene. He praised the Argentine superstar and claimed that no strategy could be used to stop him.

“There is no recipe on how to stop the best player in the world. You have to try and play the perfect game. Leo’s mentality is impressive, he always wants to win”. Said Marquez.

About Argentina and Lionel Messi

With Messi on the field, Mexico Football Team has failed to defeat Argentina in the World Cup in the 2006 and 2010 competitions, respectively. At the 2022 World Cup, they will have their hands full because Argentina is undefeated in 32 games in all competitions.

It is possible that this will be the final opportunity for Lionel Messi to bring the World Cup trophy home. Hence with that in mind, he will be working to fulfil his aim of leading Argentina to victory in Qatar later this year, together with his team mates.
