Messi: 2018 Is My Last Chance To Win The World Cup

Messi: 2018 Is My Last Chance To Win The World Cup

Argentina star Lionel Messi is aware time is fast running out on his international career and the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia may be his last chance to win a senior international title.
In an incredible career in which he’s won virtually every title including five Ballon d’Or gongs, a senior title with the Albiceleste is the only chink in his shining armour.
Argentina have been three-time Copa America runners-up and also lost the 2014 World Cup final in Brazil in Messi’s 12 years with the senior team.
The 30-year-old is now desperate to go one better in Russia, with his team having been beaten by Germany in extra time in Rio de Janeiro four years ago.
“We feel that, if we won’t win the World Cup in Russia, the only way will be to give up the national team,” Messi told La Cornisa on Sunday.
“I dream of winning the trophy in Russia. My wish is to live something similar to Brazil 2014.
“You can do everything OK and fail, like Argentina in Brazil.”
Argentina are considered favourites in a World Cup preliminary group which has Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria in Group D.

  • Dream how you’ll get out of that deadly group first before hallucinating about winning the cup. Granted you are talented, but can a tree make up a forest? The SE will clip your wings and Argentina will leave Russia empty handed. Holy revenge is very sweet. Nigeria and Iceland will go through.

  • A dream that’ll come to pass if Argentina doesn’t beat Nigeria…. I mean Argentina has never won a tournament they beat Nigeria in if the game isn’t a final match.

  • Messi,if care is not taking Argentina will crash at the group stage.

  • Full of Star players but Zero teamwork equals to Crashing out of the Group stage..lol. Argentina is just comparable to PSG

  • I don’t know about winning the cup, but I strongly feel mess I will retire in tears in the hand of SE.

    Messi’s highest achievement in the global tournament shall be the final he reached with Argentina against Germany; that his age is running over is not enough compassionate appeal that other competitors should hand him world cup trophy on a platter of gold. History will have it that he was so great that he did not win that glorious cup or include it in his soccer profile.
