A World Cup without Messi?

A World Cup without Messi?

One off, if not the best, players in the world is in danger of missing out on playing in the 2018 World Cup, in Russia.

Lionel Messi`s Argentina could only manage a draw with Peru in Buenos Aires leaving Argentina in sixth place, in the South American qualifying group, with just one game to go.

For all Messi`s endeavour, whereby our superstar, in front of a capacity crowd of 49,000 inside La Bombonera, created numerous chances for his team-mates, all of which were squandered, whilst also hitting the post himself, Argentina just couldn`t get the win they needed.

Argentina now need to win their final game away to Ecuador to grab fifth spot and set up a two-legged tie against New Zealand to claim a place in Russia.

A failure to do so will see Argentina miss out on a World Cup Finals for the first time since 1970.
