Today at The World Cup - Another milestone

Posted by Olga Vaher on December 04, 2022 Olga Vaher


Lionel Messi scored in his 1,000th senior appearance, as Argentina beat Australia 2:1. This secured their place in quarter-finals of the World Cup.

Messi provided the first moment of quality to fashion Argentina’s breakthrough against a well-drilled Australia late in the first half, playing a one-two with Nicolas Otamendi on the edge of the penalty area before side-footing into the bottom corner.

Julian Alvarez pounced on an error by Australia goalkeeper Mat Ryan to put two-time world champions in full control early in the second half, but out of nowhere, Craig Goodwin’s deflected shot threw Australia a lifeline.

Argentina threatened to regain their two-goal lead, but it needed Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez’s brilliant last-ditch tackle to deny Aziz Behich and goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez’s crucial save in the dying moments to keep out Australia’s teenage substitute Garang Kuol’s effort.

Van Gaal’s side has been heavily criticized in the Dutch media for being boring but they provided one of the best moves of the tournament for their first goal, passing their way through their opponents before Dumfries cut the ball back for the onrushing Depay to sweep the ball into the bottom corner.

“I guess the biggest thing is the expectation levels and the satisfaction levels," Southgate said. “We have to take a step at a time, the same thing. We talked about that from the beginning of the tournament.

“Our first objective was to qualify for the group. We knew we had three games to do that. There was an awful lot of noise after our second, but we stayed calm and on track, and we qualified as well as anybody else has.

The 46-year-old former Birmingham and Portsmouth midfielder was missing from his media duties on Saturday, the day before the fixture against England in Al Khor has also been unable to take training on Friday.

“He has been sick for a couple of days now," said assistant coach Regis Bogaert, who replaced Cisse at the press conference. “He let us take charge of training yesterday, obviously with his instructions to the players.
