Messi and his teammates arrived in Qatar’s capital Doha at 2:30 local time. A few hours earlier, the Tango team had just defeated the UAE with a score of 5-0 in a friendly match preparing for the 2022 World Cup.
The victory over the UAE helped Argentina extend its unbeaten streak to 36. This was the match in which star Messi also scored. In the 2022 World Cup, Argentina is in Group C with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland. The tournament in Qatar is considered the last opportunity for Messi to help the Argentine national team win the World Cup like his predecessor Maradona did in 1986.
Argentina is considered the leading candidate for the championship title. However, Messi appeared very cautious.
“In the 2022 World Cup there are many championship candidates and we always respect them equally. If forced to choose the top candidates, I think Brazil, France and England are a little better than the rest. remaining.
But the World Cup is so difficult and complicated that anything can happen. We are very excited about this year’s tournament. Argentina is a good team, but I only think about one match at a time,” Messi said.
