When asked if he did not feel any pressure in the atmosphere of cheering for Lionel Messi of Argentina, who is playing his last World Cup match, he said, “I often did,” but said, “I don’t have any special worries or stress about the game.” He continued, “Many people around the world, not just Argentina, want Messi to win the World Cup, but we will do our best to achieve our goal.”

“I think the event is too big to focus on just one player,” Lloris said. “Argentina is a strong team and there are many other young players. This is because Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni has built a solid team around Messi, the ‘superstar’.” “I know very well what Messi means in sports history. But in the end, it’s a match between France and Argentina. We will do our best in the last game.”
