But in front of the hand to touch the dream. Fearing the end of his football career, he still wanted to get on the field. Maria had a good relationship with manager Aleandro Sabaya. Going to his room early in the morning, Maria said, “If you take me down, I will play until I die.” Maria didn’t want to play in that final against Germany from the start.

The left-footed star was going out of touch. Buddy took the penalty for Messi. France broke the cycle and scored the second goal.
