The former international Daniel Passarella expressed this Friday the “great emotion” he felt when he saw the soccer team of Argentina become world champion in Qatar 2022.
In an interview with the channel TyC Sportsthe former defender who won the 1978 and 1986 World Cups with the Albiceleste said “it’s a great feeling to see Argentina champion” and featured the figure of the captain, Lionel Messiwho “knows how to lead guys the way they need to play.”
“He is the most important player in the World Cup,” summed up the only Argentine soccer player to accumulate two titles in that sporting event.
catwalk It was indicated that “the other teammates also supported him, they made a great effort and they gave everything they wanted”, while repeating that “he deserves it. Messi“.
However, the ‘Kaiser’ does not want to talk about the comparisons between ‘Flea’ and other historical players of the Albiceleste, because, in his opinion, both Mario Alberto Kempes in 1978 as Diego Armando Maradona in 1986 are protagonists.
“It’s a great feeling, also for the people who came out to celebrate everywhere and I really liked this recognition from the people, because it’s something that’s hard to achieve”, highlighted the former defender of River Plate and the italians Fiorentina and Inter Milan.
The title achieved by ‘Scaloneta’ in Qatar 2022after losing in the final to France -who is the current champion- is the third in history for Argentinawhich obtained it in 1978 and 1986.
