Andy Murray couldn’t resist trolling Piers Morgan following Lionel Messi’s stunner for Argentina vs Mexico on Saturday evening.
It is well known that Morgan is a huge fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and he slams Messi at every given opportunity.
Morgan was critical of Messi following Argentina’s opening Qatar World Cup game against Saudi Arabia.
Messi scored the opener but could not prevent his side from falling to a 2-1 defeat.
Following the shock result, Morgan took to Twitter to mock the 35-year-old great.
Argentina were in serious trouble in their second group game against Mexico on Saturday evening.
Lionel Scaloni’s side desperately needed a victory but the score was all-square with half-an-hour remaining.
Messi rescued his sid, though, with a stunner in the 65th minute.
Messi took aim from some 25 yards out and his powerful effort found the bottom corner.
Argentina went on to win 2-0, with Messi also assisting Enzo Fernandez’s 87th minute clincher.
Murray was quick to mock Morgan on Twitter after the match.
The tennis player sent a picture of Messi celebrating to Morgan with the caption ‘Oops.’
Morgan couldn’t help but reply, tweeting in response: “I can see why you like him… both the 2nd best players in your sport to come from your own country. #maradona #perry.”
Fans have been reacting to Murray’s trolling on Twitter and you can view some reaction below…
Scaloni was full of praise for Messi after the match.
He said, per Mundo Deportivo: “We knew the game was going to be difficult. We had the suspicion that Mexico were going to play with a line of 5.
“It cost us the first half, but we corrected at half-time by putting Guido Rodríguez between the central defenders. We matched them in the middle. Then they saw what happened.
“The ’10’ decided the game. And it’s good for us. He has a group behind him that supports him. It’s exciting in every way.”
He added: “We have known for years that we have the best in the world. I think that even the Mexican fans enjoy him, even if he scored against them.”
