Lionel Messi has revealed himself in the eyes of the Argentine people, who have nevertheless worshiped him for several years, but in another role, as a moral leader of his team that he did not know, or too little. Lack of charisma, not enough leader on and off the field… All these reproaches addressed to the Pulga for so many years have suddenly disappeared.

The six-time Argentinian Golden Ball, named best player of the Copa America won by Albiceleste, weighed on the fate of his team throughout the competition, with the possible exception of the final, where his teammate Angel Di Maria, decisive scorer, shone more.

Relieved of an immense pressure that weighed on his shoulders, and while he was already swimming in full happiness, Lionel Messi did not let himself go so far, after the final whistle. He showed the best version of himself as captain by restraining the ardor of his teammate Rodrigo De Paul, on the verge of launching an anti-Brazilian chant in the euphoria of victory. Messi immediately cut him off.
