Even though Sachin Tendulkar is called the ‘Lord of Cricket’, he is equally fond of tennis, football. When Argentina defeated Brazil in the Copa America final early on Sunday, Sachin could not stop himself. The Master-Blaster not only praised both the teams on social media but also explained why he is considered such a big ambassador of the sports world.
Argentina won their first Copa América title in 28 years, giving Messi his first trophy in Argentine colours. Therefore, congratulating Messi, Sachin wrote, ‘Heartiest congratulations to Argentina on winning the final of Copa America. It is a historic victory for the Argentine people and a matter of joy for Messi, who has had such a wonderful career. Keep inspiring you guys.
Sachin tied the knot
Argentina won 1–0 after the final whistle. While the winning team drowned in celebration, Neymar could not hold back his tears. The Brazilian forward was consoled by his teammates, manager and support staff. Sachin is also among those who consoled Neymar. For Neymar’s photo, Tendulkar wrote, ‘The pain of losing the final is understandable, but it is just a turning point in the road Neymar is not the end. You will come back strong and make yourself proud.
Messi also boosted Neymar’s encouragement
After the match, Messi came close to Neymar and gave a long hug so that he could gather his emotions. The two lived together in Barcelona for four years before Neymar moved to Paris Saint-Germain. Prior to Sunday, Messi’s victories at the international level were a gold medal at the 2005 Under-20 FIFA World Cup and the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Angel Di Maria’s goal in the 22nd minute gave the visitors a 1-0 win over Brazil.
