Argentina captain Lionel Messi says his team’s forwards had their share of chances in their World Cup Final loss to Germany on Sunday.
The Albiceleste were defeated 1-0 via Mario Gotze’s brilliant extra-time volley at the Maracana, having squandered good opportunities at the feet of Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Rodrigo Palacio in Rio de Janeiro.
Messi, who was named player of the tournament, said: “We haven’t been in the semi-finals for many years and the fact that we played the final and the way we played it it’s something to be proud of.[eap_ad_2]
“But we deserved more and that’s why we are sad. The strikers missed the chances we had. It’s a bad feeling for all of us because we couldn’t win the cup and take it to our people.
“It’s painful to lose it by so little. We were very close of a big change for this national team but we couldn’t finish it.” (kickoffnigeria)[eap_ad_3]
