    Putting too much pressure one person Messi; while other team members ignored. Why shouldn’t they lose. There is no morale for them.Recommend

    Don’t understand why people invest so much time, effort and emotions in celebrities, sports, etc.? These people don’t care about you and are aware that you even exist. Direct your attention towards friends, family and people that actually care about you. This hero-worshipping trend should stop. These celebrities are not worth emulating!Recommend
