Lionel Messi had not been having the best 2018 World Cup. Until today. The Argentina star had gone several games without scoring a goal. Until today.
Argentina is taking on Nigeria in the final game of group play. The Argentines need a win in order to advance into the knockout round.
Messi has put his team on top. He scored a goal 14 minutes into this afternoon's contest.
The Argentina star reacted in relief, falling to the ground in joy. His country reacted in jubilation.
No one had a better reaction than Diego Maradona. The Argentina legend had an incredible reaction to the goal that was captured by FOX.
Check it out:
That. Was. Awesome.
There doesn't appear to be a much better feeling in sports than scoring a goal in the World Cup - or watching your favorite player score a goal in the World Cup.
Messi and Maradona just provided us with a great example of that. The rest of the game, meanwhile, can be seen on FOX.
