Angel di Maria’s texts to his wife before the World Cup final revealed, he knew something special was about to happen

The texts Angel di Maria sent to his wife ahead of the World Cup final proved that he knew something special was about to happen.

Now, Di Maria’s texts to his wife prior to the final have been revealed and he knew something special was about to happen.

He wrote: “I will be a world champion, my love. It’s written. I will score a goal. Because it’s written like Maracana and Wembley.”

The Juventus midfielder also added: “Go and enjoy tomorrow because we are going to be world champions. Because the 26 of us here and the families deserve it.”

Amazingly, Di Maria was spot on as he did in fact score a goal in the final, he expertly finished off a fine Argentina team move to secure his side a two-goal lead before half-time.
