I have felt sadness at other times, but I knew that at some point it would happen. I feel that God was preparing me for this moment, against Brazil in the final and in their country. I needed to pull the plug to achieve something with the national team.
Our goal was clear and we were able to become champions. I dreamed of it many times. I told Di Maria that today he would take his revenge and that's how it went. I want to share it with those teammates who have come close so many times.
This is also for them. Great credit goes to manager Scaloni. He always wanted the best for the national team. He knew how to put together a winning team." ARGENTINA (4-3-3): E.
