Mourinho Comments On Messi's Costly Penalty Miss

Jose Mourinho Comments On Lionel Messi's Costly Penalty Miss

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jun 18, 2018 05:27 PM @KurtLaduma

Superstar Lionel Messi cost Argentina some crucial points when he missed a penalty against Iceland in their 2018 FIFA World Cup clash on Saturday, and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has now given his take on the matter.

Maradona Slams Argentina Boss, Comments On Messi Penalty Miss

Sergio Aguero’s 19th-minute strike was cancelled out when Alfred Finnbogason scored an equaliser for Iceland five minutes later, much to the frustration of Albiceleste coach Jorge Sampaoli.

Messi had a chance to put Argentina ahead in the 63rd minute from the penalty spot following a foul inside the box, but the 30-year-old fluffed his lines.

Mourinho has since given his opinion on the spot-kick miss, saying that even the best players can experience these unfortunate moments.

"When you miss a penalty at the World Cup, in a moment where your team needs a goal, I'm sure it affects you," he said, according to Sport.

"Even the superheroes, the super players are human. They have feelings and that penalty affected him.

"When you try to beat one man, then two, later three… it was very difficult for him."

Messi and Argentina will play against Croatia in their second game of the tournament on Thursday, and a win will be incredibly vital for Sampaoli's side.

Do you think Argentina are good enough to beat Croatia? Let us know in the comments section below.

In this lm10_vs_cr7_debate,I'm with Lionel Messi his talent is natural compared to that of Ronaldo,Messi improve Ronaldo Messi makes ronaldo work hard because he is always trying to catch up to Messi and it shows Ronaldo use to miss penalties with his stop and go but he has improved on that and while Messi is natural talent I believe he needs to work on that part of his game penalty taking other ways in,any other department he beats ronaldo
