Grateful for the support I got from team and fans: Messi
Chicago, June 11: Argenti forward Lionel Messi said he was grateful for the support he got from his fans and team-mates as he came back from an injury lay-off and scored a hat-trick in the 5-0 win over Pama in the Copa America Centerio football tourment.
“I am grateful for all this support,” Messi was quoted as saying by espnfc. “It was great to be here, especially because of the public. I am very grateful.
“I lost the pain gradually. Then, I maged to make my first goal. It was a team effort, in a tense game, with very tall grass, dry. It was tricky, but we got where we wanted.”
Argenti lost the last Copa America to Chile via a pelty shoot-out but they are on their way to end a 23-year-old wait, insisted Messi. “We are doing a good job, growing little by little. By winning the first two games, it is very good,” the FC Barcelo star said. IANS
