Argentina and Uruguay played on Thursday night in World Cup qualifying, and the story lines were endless. You had the big rivalry between the two nations, a new coach in Argentina’s Edgardo Bauza, and you also had the return of Lionel Messi from that brief ‘retirement.’
But not to be overlooked, it was Messi playing Luis Suarez. The Barcelona teammates, great friends off the pitch, were jokingly talking trash to each other before the game, and that provided us this funny clip. Take a look.
I wonder what they were saying …
My country is better than yours?
Messi, your hair looks ridiculous in South America just like it does in Europe. – Suarez
Don’t bite me. – Messi
It was definitely all in good fun, and there is nothing wrong with that. Props to being friends above everything else.
