Argentina International and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi could see his fantasies of lifting a World Cup reach an end.
It was Peru that was in charge of Argentina’s inability to fit the bill for the 1970 World Cup and Messi will trust this doesn’t occur once more.
Messi had officially resigned from the national side before rethinking in an offer to attempt and lift a slippery World Cup.
In 2014, Argentina lost to a 113th minute Mario Gotze strike in the final against Germany, in a game that saw Messi’s side lose 1-0.
For now, Argentina still can qualify for the tournament if they finish fifth, but they would have to face New Zealand in a playoff.
The Argentina national team boasts of having superstars in their team, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria, Javier Pastore and Paulo Dybala to mention a few. They will be looking to team up with Messi and create a formidable side capable of winning the World Cup, that’s if they qualify.
Messi admitted that he felt like Argentina was cursed after losing the 205 Copa America final to Chile. This might just be true as the side has never put hands on silverware since the year 1993.
