Sports Desk: If everything goes well, Messi will play his fifth World Cup this time. It is needless to say that the 36-year-old Messi will want to get rid of the regret this time. Argentina, who won the Copa America last year after 28 years of regret, is also a strong claimant for the World Cup title.
A few days ago, former Argentine legend Gabriel Batistuta said that Lionel Messi has a great chance to become a champion in the World Cup in Qatar. This time the same thing was heard in the mouth of a German legendary footballer. Jürgen Klinsmann thinks Lionel Messi will lift the trophy in the World Cup final in Doha.
According to Klinsmann, after a long time this Argentina team is playing as a unit. Coach Scaloni has built the team wisely. There are footballers who can give Messi the ball in the right place, and use the return ball to score goals.
Klinsmann believes that if a footballer like Lionel Messi ends his international career without winning at least one World Cup, it is not fair for him. Because Messi comes once in 100 years. The German legend wants to keep Lionel Messi slightly behind Maradona.
Maradona’s Argentina last won the World Cup in 1986. For 36 years, the title of the world’s best has remained elusive for the blue-white brigade. Despite reaching the final in 1990 and 2014, Argentina could not reach the dream trophy.
Argentina are on fire right before the World Cup. Lionel Messi’s team has not lost for 33 matches. Lionel Scaloni’s side are just four games away from the longest winning streak in international football history.
La Albiceleste are in Group C in the World Cup. There, the team got Saudi Arabia, Poland, Mexico as opponents. The World Cup will start in Qatar on November 20. The curtain of the World Cup will come down on December 18.
