Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez sparked controversy a few days ago when he threatened Lionel Messi for allegedly kicking a shirt from the Mexican national team. However, the scene was taken out of context and shortly after the Mexican fighter apologized to Messi and all of Argentina for his reaction.
Despite the fact that the subject seemed to be forgotten, recently Argentine commentator Adrián Magnoli caused a stir by sharing a video of Messi’s genius against Croatia that ended in a goal by Julián Álvarez. Magnoli mentioned Canelo on Twitter to see the reaction of the boxer from Guadalajara.
“Che, Canelo… there you have it, there,” he wrote. Moments later, the Aztec boxer himself responded to the tweet with the emoji of fire and a sign of approval at such a display by Messi in the World Cup. Saúl recognized the quality of the South American star and there the controversy ended. There was no more response.
Messi has an appointment with history this Sunday
Argentina will play the Qatar 2022 World Cup Final against France this Sunday at the Lusail Stadium. Lionel Messi will seek to win his first World Cup and put an end to the great slope in his career as a professional footballer, but it will not be easy to measure himself against the current monarch of the competition, who at the hands of Kylian Mbappé will seek the two-time world championship.
