Tiger Fight, October 1 News Argentine midfielder DePaul, currently playing for Udinese, recently accepted an interview on FIFA's official website. He talked about Messi in the interview. DePaul said that Messi is a true leader, if Messi let him on the battlefield, he is willing. DePaul also talked about the Argentine national team. He said that playing on behalf of Argentina means taking on greater responsibilities.
"In the beginning it was for fun. When I was a child, I wore football equipment and knew how to play. Whether at the Belgrano Club or at home, I was most interested in football, and I didn't have enough money to buy a game console. "
"The 1998 World Cup! Although you may not believe it, because I was only four years old, I wanted to play in the local club like my two brothers."
"And I was too young, my age group did not have a team, so I went to a higher level."
"I could only play goalkeepers, and they all called me Lechuga (the nickname of the former Argentine national team goalkeeper Carlos Roa). I even got a Carlos Roa purple jersey.
"As I grow older, my views on the World Cup have changed. I remember that in 2002, I got up very early to watch the match between Argentina and Sweden. After the match, I was very sad."
"Germany eliminated Argentina in 2006. I was still in school, and my classmates and I were very sad."
"The Argentine national team's exit at the 2018 Russia World Cup is even more unacceptable, because my friends Otamendi and Dybala both represented Argentina in the World Cup."
"The sports director of Udinese knew Walter Samuel for a long time, and Samuel said that the Argentine national team wanted to recruit me, and the national team sent staff to check my performance. I really very excited."
"Before joining the national team, I didn't have much feeling, and when I stepped onto the court and heard the Argentine national anthem, my heart really felt like being hit."
"I don't think we are a brand new team now. I am just a member of the team. It is a great honor to be called up by the Argentine national team."
"I also have to take a greater responsibility. Representing 45 million Argentines is not a joke."
"Fortunately, we performed well in the Copa America before. Although we lost to Brazil in the semifinals and failed to win the championship, the fans also saw what we did."
"Scaloni may not have experience as a head coach, but he has been engaged in football-related jobs for the past 30 years. Scaloni knows everything about football."
"He has worked in the youth team. Scaloni has also participated in the World Cup, just like Samuel, Ayala and Aimar, these people know the Argentina national team better than us players."
"I think this Argentine national team is the best team I have ever played. We are now starting to try new things. The coach is also trying to inject new ideas into the team. Everyone in the team knows their specifics. Work, no one wants to show off."
"I think Messi is still the only player in the team who will not be replaced, and what other players in our team have to do is to contribute to the team."
"I respect Messi very much. When you become closer to Messi, you will find that he is willing to share his views with you."
"When Messi became the captain of the team, if he asked me to join him on the battlefield, I am willing, because I think Messi is a real leader."
"Of course, our match against Brazil was postponed, and we played seven games afterwards. For many players in the team, this was our first World Cup qualifier."
"We have also talked a lot about the World Cup qualifiers before. We know that this kind of game will be very important and hope we can start the first game in October."
"I will say assists, and I will be very happy when I assist my teammate and score."
"Francisca will be two years old right away. The appearance of my child changed my life. That is very important to me. I have changed a lot both on the court and in life."
"Many of my tattoos have special meanings, including the names of my daughter, the names of my wife and mother, the birthday of my grandfather, and the first game I played for the Argentine national team."
"I don't think I will get any more tattoos for the time being, unless I win the World Cup with Argentina. If we do it later, I will have a World Cup trophy on my chest."
