RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol has said he’s proud to have faced Lionel Messi in the World Cup.
Messi scored in Argentina’s World Cup semifinal win this week.
Of the game, Gvardiol said: “It was a nice experience even though I played against him in the club last season.
“He is a completely different type of player in the club and in the national team.
“I am glad that I played against him even though we lost.
“But today and tomorrow I will be able to tell the children that I guarded Messi for 90 minutes. I guess we will beat him next time.”
