'Difference was Messi'- Henry Martin
As the Mexican side failed to register a win for another time in the Qatar World Cup 2022, Mexico's forward Henry Martin stated that the only difference between the two sides was the fact that Argentina had Lionel Messi with them. "The difference was because they had Messi. We did our job and unfortunately, we left in defeat. So it hurts, but tomorrow we have to be thinking about what's next in the next game, because we have one last chance and we have to take advantage of it," Martin stated.
