Wojciech Szczesny made a bet with Lionel Messi. Wojciech Szczesny, the goalie for Poland, has admitted that he wagered €100 on a penalty in their World Cup match with Argentina legend Lionel Messi. On November 30, the two groups played in their last Group C encounter. The Paris Saint-Germain player appeared to be caught in the penalty area by the Juventus goalie as the game remained scoreless. Before Szczesny elbowed him in the face, Messi had already headed the ball wide of the net.

Although the on-field referee first dismissed Argentina’s appeal, VAR officials persuaded him to go to the monitor. According to Szczesny, he wagered Messi €100 million during that inspection so that the penalty wouldn’t be assessed. We spoke before the penalty, and I told him I could bet him €100 he wouldn’t give it, said. I, therefore, lost the wager against Messi.

Argentina was given a penalty by the referee, and the PSG player accepted it. But Szczesny made an outstanding save—his second from the penalty spot in the FIFA World Cup 2022—to keep it scoreless. In their 2-0 victory over Saudi Arabia in their second game of the competition, he also turned away a penalty.

Szczesny’s stop allowed Poland to enter halftime without scoring. Alexis MacAllister and Julian Alvarez scored goals for Argentina in the second half to secure a 2-0 victory. Despite losing their initial match to Saudi Arabia, they won Group C. Poland also advanced to the Round of 16 after beating Mexico on goal differential in the other match, which the south American team lost 2-1 to Saudi Arabia.

In addition, Scaloni emphasized that La Albiceleste are already concentrating on their upcoming matchup with Australia. We are thrilled, he replied, but we shouldn’t be overjoyed since it’s absurd that we have to play in two days and the weather isn’t fantastic. We are not the favorites; the group was competitive (C). But just because we succeeded today doesn’t mean we are winners. We have seen a few Australian videos. We will prepare carefully and analyze them starting tomorrow.
