Messi: Russia My Last Chance For WC Success

Lionel Messi: Russia My Last Chance For FIFA World Cup Success

By Keegan Kruger - Mar 19, 2018 06:23 PM @KeeganKruger

Argentina captain Lionel Messi has admitted that he and his teammates acknowledge that the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia may be the last opportunity for them to win the coveted trophy.

Messi: I'm Not Selfish Anymore

The FC Barcelona star has lifted numerous individual and club accolades throughout his career, but is yet to win a major trophy with his national team.

Since Messi's debut for Argentina, the South Americans have made three Copa America and one World Cup final, but lost on all four occasions.

"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.

"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."

'Messi Beats You Before You Play Against Him!'

Messi's nation has been drawn alongside Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia in Group D at Russia 2018.

Do you think La Albiceleste have what it takes to win the 2018 showpiece? Have your say in the comments section below.

You are hiding behind good players at barca and you always taking all the credits that that should be given to the whole team. The problem is you've got fans everywhere particularly the media

The guys you play with don't compliment you, they are far from your level that's why they haven't won no silverware in many years.

Keep on dreaming shorty, we all know you went to your Juju man & sacrificed your international success for Club success.....the only chance of winning a World cup was in 2010 but you & your father Maradona chose to leave out "Riquelme" who was the main man & engine of the Argentina national team so that you can get the #10 jersey...... Argentina will never win anything with you around.
