The Argentineans, who won the last Copa America, remain unbeaten in 35 consecutive matches since 2019. They are now dreaming of winning their first title since 1986 with the help of the Argentina head coach. Firstly, they will need to fight for the promotion in Group C, in which they will face Saudi Arabia on November 22, Mexico four days later, and Poland on November 30.

The seven-time Golden Ball winner, Messi believes in his team but, at the same time, warns against being too optimistic:

 

  • “Today, we are doing well, and people are excited and think we will come back with a trophy, but it doesn’t look like that. We have aspirations, and we will fight. We are not afraid of anyone because we are ready to play great football against anyone, however, with calmness,” – said the 35-year-old Argentine and Paris Saint Germain star in an interview with Directv Sports.

 

  • “The World Cup is always tough to play, and many things must happen to win it. It’s not only that we do well. Many things can cause us to drop out of the tournament. And there are a lot of teams that want the same as we do and are also doing well”, he added.

 

The famous footballer believes the first match on November 22 against Saudi Arabia will be crucial. The Argentina head coach has been training the team to deal with this opening match.

 

  • “In the opening minutes of the first match, nerves and anxiety are always difficult to manage. I think the opening game is vital because starting with a win provides a calm head later”, Messi noted.

 

Argentina’s participation in the previous FIFA Cup, in 2018, started with a 1:1 draw against Iceland, with Messi failing to score a winner on a penalty kick. The Argentineans made it to the 1/8 final from the second place in the group, where they were eliminated by the French, who went on to win the tournament.

 

  • “We started the last tournament with a draw, and I always said that if I had scored a goal out of the penalty and if we had won, we could change our history”, said Messi.
