Four years later, the national football team, led by Dewey and Folado, was eliminated one round ahead of schedule, but it saved face by beating Australia in the final round away. In the 2011 preliminaries, China’s men’s soccer team led by Camacho beat Jordan 3-1 in the final round. Although it still failed to advance to the top 10, its performance can be regarded as "brave after shame".
Football News commented that in the past five preliminaries, the national football team rarely lost in the games after being eliminated, but now, the national football team has even kicked out the last hero.

2. The continuous adjustment of the lineup is normal, but every player is showing his important value. This attitude of teamwork and positive contribution of the players will undoubtedly bring hope to the future of the team.

This will bring some challenges against teams with strong insiders such as Nuggets, Timberwolves, Lakers, Grizzlies, Celtics and Bucks. Facing these teams, their tactics and defensive strategies need to be adjusted accordingly, such as strengthening perimeter defense, finding rebounding advantages and improving fast break efficiency to make up for the shortage of inside lines.

Having led Argentina to their first World Cup in 36 years with victory over France, Messi proceeded to make more history off the pitch with his photo gallery on Instagram, which racked up more than 65 million likes at the time of writing.

Messi, 35, scored twice before converting in the penalty shoot-out in a pulsating final described as one of the greatest ever, with the team greeted by scenes of wild jubilation on their return home.
“Champions of the world! So many times I dreamed it, so much I wanted it that I still don’t fall, I can’t believe it,” Messi wrote alongside the post that included 10 photos of him hoisting the trophy aloft and celebrating with his teammates.
“Thank you so much to my family, to all who support me and also to all who believed in us. We prove once again that Argentinians when we fight together and united we are able to achieve what we aim.
“The merit is of this group, which is above individuals, is the strength of all fighting for the same dream that was also the one of all Argentinians … We did it!”
Guinness World Records shared a series of records broken by Messi after the final, noting that he had surpassed Germany’s Lothar Matthaus for the record of most World Cup matches played, with 26.
The World Cup trophy had been the one piece of silverware missing from Messi’s extraordinary career, during which he has been voted the world’s best player a record seven times and won the Copa America, 11 league titles and four Champions League titles among other major honours.
