Rafa Nadal knows all about resilience in sport and he says Lionel Messi’s Argentina can shake off the disappointment of their stunning World Cup defeat by Saudi Arabia and have a deep run in Qatar.
Nadal, who won two Grand Slams in an injury-hit 2022, said Saudi Arabia’s victory was merely a reflection of just how evenly matched soccer has become.
The 35-year-old also paid tribute to Messi, who played for Real’s arch-rivals Barcelona.
Argentina play Mexico in their second Group C match on Sunday.
