Who are the favorites in this World Cup in the eyes of Messi
Lionel Messi has passed 35. 2026 World Cup will be 39. Therefore, the Qatar World Cup was considered Messi’s last World Cup by his teammates. The Argentine superstar may not be seen in this football festival every four years. This is true even if the fans are upset.
So this time the fans want Messi’s career to end after winning the World Cup. I have the same desire. But Messi is not holding his favorite in the World Cup in Qatar!
The FIFA World Cup will be held in the Middle East country of Qatar on November 20. 32 countries will compete for a trophy. In response to the question of who are the favorites in this event, Messi named five countries. Where he has kept arch-rivals Brazil and France ahead of everyone in the race for the title.
In an interview with Spain-based media, Messi said that the big countries in the World Cup are always in the race to become champions. From that point of view I would have Brazil, France, Germany, Spain on my list along with England. People always have more eyes on them. Maybe there will be some other countries, but there is no situation to think about them in the end.
However, Messi said that which two teams will be put forward as possible champions, Brazil and France are the biggest contenders to win the World Cup today. The same footballers have been playing in these two teams for a long time. Their preparation is very good.
Explaining why he chose these two teams, Messi said, excluding the last Euro Cup, there are several great footballers in the France team. Everything is very clear to them. It has been the same coach (Didier Claude Deschamps) for a long time. Same goes for Brazil. Brazil will play under Tite.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has been in a frenzy with the Argentina team recently. Last year, they won the Copa America by defeating Brazil in the final. They are unbeaten in 35 matches. However, before the World Cup, injuries have worried the Argentines.
Paulo Dybala and Angel Di Maria are both injured. Messi himself was injured a few days ago. Could not enter the field for PSG. Messi has been seen expressing concern about teammates’ injuries.
Messi made his World Cup debut in 2006. He then participated in the 2010, 2014 and 2018 World Cups. In four tournaments, his team came closest to the title in 2014. But Messi’s dream was broken in extra minutes against Germany. This is the last chance for the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner to lift the FIFA World Cup trophy. 1 2 3 4 5 6
