Canelo Alvarez, a famous Mexican boxer who has won numerous world championships. Spotted Messi disrespecting their country’s jersey and posted on Twitter, posting “Did you see Messi cleaning the floor with our shirt and flag?“
Sergio Aguero responded to the tweet and stated “Mr. Canelo, don’t look for excuses or problems, surely you don’t know about soccer and what happens in a locker room. The shirts are always on the floor after the games are over due to sweat and then if you see well. He makes the movement to remove the booty and accidentally hits it.”
The 35-year-old was once again on the front headlines when his goal against a determined Mexico provided breathing space for Argentina as they grew into the match, and Enzo Fernandez capped the game with a wonderful curler in the top corner to give Argentina a 2-0 triumph.
