Usain ​Bolt Backs Argentina To Win World Cup, Expects Plenty Of Goals In Russia

With his own Jamaica missing out on the party, eight-time Olympic champion,​​ Usain Bolt says he will be supporting Argentina at the 2018 FIFA World Cup which kicks off on Thursday.

Drawn with Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria in Group, Bolt also admits that Barcelona star, Lionel Messi can lead the South American nation to glory for the first time since 1986.
“For me, I’m an Argentina fan,”Bolt was quoted by FourFourTwo magazine.

“I think we have a good chance if we play good, then we should have a good chance of making the finals and even winning.

“I’m looking forward to just watching the World Cup and seeing the great teams.”
Bolt also expects to see plenty of goals in Russia, adding that the tournament will be one of the best ever.

“Brazil? I’ve seen Neymar’s back. He’s scored two goals since he’s been back.”

“He’s proving that he’s one of the best and this is why I’ve told people that this World Cup will be one of the best World Cups.

“It will be very competitive and I think there’s going to be a lot of goals this year so I’m just going to enjoy it, just like you guys.”

    Someone said not too long ago that Leon Messi is 50% of Argentina. Has people like Bolt ask why Argentina found it hard to qualify easily from their South American group? Have they improved anyhow since almost not coming to the WC? I don’t think so. Argentina may just qualify from the group. Their first march is vs Iceland. Do you think, Iceland will just fall over like a submissive lion? No, no, no!!! Whatever the result, the vs Croatia match will be tough especially if Croatia loss to Nigeria. Do you think, after the vs Croatia and Iceland matches Nigeria will just allow Argentina to just take the match? It is no no no!!! So think Usain Bolt.

      If you are judging from those qualifiers you are dead wrong. It’s seams likes you ppl a ready forgot that this is the same argentina that reach 3 consecutive final in 3 years under limited more limited resources than what they have right now.n the reason why they struggled to qualified is not a shortage of talent but more than years of eternal problems which come to a stormy end at the back of 2016 into 2017.inwhich they go through 3 different coaches to qualify for Russia. Any team would have struggled n even end up not qualified.just like Italy n the Netherlands..The thing is argentina right now is unknown to ppl like you..you are watching the Same clip from those bad days of qualifications..those days has already past there’s a renewed fresh air blowing through argentine football again this is a different team from what you see in those qualifiers with a completely different mindset thanks to jorge sampling n Claudia tapia and they are he’ll bent on winning this world cup
