De Paul left a note in Lionel Messi’s room Approximately two months before the World Cup.
In Lionel Messi’s room, Rodrigo de Paul left him a note. The midfielder got everything just right while they were in camp for Argentina.
Several were ready to claim that everything during the World Cup was pre-planned to allow Messi to win the one trophy he had failed to win.
Messi also delivered by becoming the first man to score in every World Cup knockout round. In previous competition appearances, he has never advanced past the group stages.
During Argentina’s training camp in September, Messi’s teammate Rodrigo de Paul left a note in the forward’s room. It declared that they would win the world championship.
The Atletico Madrid star writing his number on the note is its best feature. Just in case the Paris Saint-Germain player is unaware of who he is.
They were nearing the end of an incredible 36-game winning streak. The only game left is a warm-up match against the United Arab Emirates.
Saudi Arabia’s first group game in Qatar ended that streak. It was a significant victory for the Middle Eastern team.
It caused many problems for Lionel Scaloni’s team because every game after that essentially turned into a knockout match. They defeated Poland; otherwise, Mexico would have eliminated them.
De Paul didn’t quite have the tournament that made headlines like his more well-known teammate did, but he was crucial in midfield.
In the 80th minute, though, they suddenly took action. Kylian Mbappe scored twice in 95 seconds to send the match into overtime and give the French the upper hand.
In extra time, Messi scored once more. Only Mbappe has ever scored a hat-trick in a World Cup final, forcing a shootout.
The note was unknown to France and the rest of the world. Everyone might have been much more at ease if they had known De Paul had already promised the outcome.
