Lewandowski discusses what he said to Messi in his ear following an altercation with the Argentina star in the Poland World Cup matchup.
After tussling with Lionel Messi at the 2022 World Cup, Robert Lewandowski has revealed what he said in the Argentina superstar’s ear.
Two modern-day greats, who are captains of their respective nations, were all smiles before and after the crucial clash between Argentina and Poland in Qatar.
They did, however, lock horns at one stage in the midst of a contest that a star-studded South American squad edged 2-0, with Messi not taking kindly to seeing his shirt pulled by the striker who has helped to fill the attacking void his 2021 move to Paris Saint-Germain left behind at Barcelona.

Current Blaugrana star Lewandowski has told BILD when asked what he said to Messi at the final whistle of a game that saw both teams progress to the last 16 in the Middle East: “We talked a bit and it was fun. I told Messi that he was playing more defensively than usual, but sometimes that’s what the team needs.”
Lewandowski added on the incident that saw Messi react angrily to being fouled by a fellow winner of the FIFA Best Award: “That was very strange, yes: I was in the centre of the pitch defending, but I knew I had to help the team.”
In Argentina’s match against Poland, Messi missed a penalty kick after Wojciech Szczesny made an incredible save, but goals from Alexis Mac Allister and Julian Alvarez were enough to advance the Albiceleste as Group C champions.
