After playing the 14th match of the 2021/2022 French League, Messi admitted that he was happy with his first goal. Moreover, PSG can gain three points
PSG opened the scoring through Kylian Mbappe’s quick goal in the second minute. Nantes had equalized through Randal Kolo Muani’s goal in the 76th minute.
Dennis Appiah’s own goal in the 81st minute made the home side take the lead. Then closed Messi with a left foot kick in the 87th minute.
Messi admitted that he was waiting for his first goal. The player nicknamed La Pulga was happy when the long wait paid off.
“I’m happy to have scored my first goal. I really want to get it. I had a few chances at the start of the game and in previous games,” Messi said.
Messi spent 412 minutes in Ligue 1 waiting for his first goal. At that time, Messi fired 19 shots with seven of them on target.
Messi actually could have scored the first goal faster, namely in the 17th minute. But his shot can still be thwarted by Nantes goalkeeper, Alban Lafont.
