NIZHNY NOVGOROD, June 30: Lionel Messi’s last chance to add a major international title to a glittering array of personal achievements and trophies at club level almost certainly disappeared with Argentina’s elimination from the World Cup on Saturday.
"The most important thing is to compete well and then God and Messi will decide if we can win the World Cup," Argentina president Mauricio Macri said of his country's chances of winning the tournament in Russia.
The World Cup is the biggest stage for a player to show what he can do in front of the whole world. With the world watching your performance it can either make you a hero or a zero. David Beckham once was the most hated man in English football. His sending off against Argentina was seen as the main reason for England being knocked out from the 1998 world cup. Everywhere he went, people used to chant 'you cost us the World Cup'.
BARCELONA, Nov 30: Argentina’s superstar footballer Lionel Messi’s father is negotiating his son’s transfer from Spanish champions FC Barcelona to French side Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), according to media reports.
