Mess Messi unlikely to play World Cup
Argentinian Woes: Country may not play World Cup

Football favorites Argentina may not compete in World Cup 2018. The team, which is captained by FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi, had a tough time in the qualifying rounds.

The team managed only a 0-0 draw in their qualifying match against Peru on Thursday, October 5. They are currently at the sixth position in the 10 team South American category. Only the top four teams would be guaranteed spots at Russia, 2018.

Argentina are no strangers to the Cup having won the title twice. They have, however struggled for goals in the qualifiers. The team have managed to score only one goal in their past three matches.

Some of this struggle may be attributed to the constant change in leadership. In recent times Argentina has switched coaches three times.

The current coach, Jorge Sampaoli, is optimistic despite their weak position. In a statement he said, “I remain confident we’ll be in the World Cup. It would really be unfair if a group that put it all out there-like they did-does not advance.”

It would certainly be unfair to team captain Lionel Messi. The football star is likely to play in the World Cup for the final time. Despite numerous individual accolades, Messi is yet to deliver a major trophy for Argentina.

However, Argentina has no reason to give up hope until now. They have one final qualifier against Ecuador in Quito on Tuesday, October 10.

Speaking to the press about the final, nerve racking match, Sampaoli said, “If we confront it with the conviction that we had against Peru, we will win at Ecuador.”

Fans however, must hope that conviction will be enough to take their team to the coveted Cup.

  1. I have to show some appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of this type of dilemma. As a result of looking through the the net and obtaining thoughts that were not powerful, I assumed my life was well over. Living minus the approaches to the issues you’ve sorted out through the short post is a critical case, as well as the kind which might have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not noticed your website. Your primary knowledge and kindness in dealing with all the pieces was priceless. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a solution like this. I can also at this point look forward to my future. Thanks so much for the expert and effective help. I won’t hesitate to recommend your blog post to any individual who needs assistance about this subject.

  2. I enjoy you because of your whole hard work on this blog. My niece enjoys setting aside time for investigation and it’s easy to see why. Many of us hear all about the compelling medium you offer great strategies on the web site and even strongly encourage response from some other people on that concept while our favorite child is without a doubt discovering so much. Take pleasure in the rest of the new year. You’re doing a remarkable job.

  3. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
