Superstar Leo Messi has a full personal collection except for the World Cup and Copa America. Thinking that Leo Messi and his Argentina team-mates could conquer the 2020 Copa America held in their homeland, the pandemic virus ruined everything.
Leo Messi (born 1987) is one of the best players of all time and the best player in the world right now. He was also the owner of 6 Golden Balls in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2019, the best player in FIFA 6 times, the first player to win 6 Golden Shoes and countless tournaments. bonus, another record.
Number 10 fanciful
Leo Messi‘s play is compared to the legendary Diego Maradona, who considers Messi his “heir”. But his fate was not as good as his senior Maradona in Argentina team shirt.
Leo Messi recruited in 2005 but it was not until 2009 that he was awarded the legendary number 10 shirt. The Albiceleste national team was then led by former coach Diego Maradona. Since then, under five coaches holding the national team, Leo Messi‘s No. 10 shirt in Argentina is still “inviolable”.
Unlike wearing this shirt and winning all the noble honors at the Barcelona club, returning to duty in the national team, “La Pulga Atomica” is still excellent but noble titles have been and still eluding him. There have been dozens of writers analyzing this absurdity, but in the end, the most common point is luck to turn away this 33-year-old star.
Up to now, Leo Messi has surpassed “Lion King” Gabriel Batistuta (56 goals, 78 matches) to become Argentina’s greatest goalscorer with 70 goals after 138 times wearing the “Tango dancers”. Messi is keeping the record for the number of times he wears a national team shirt and the number of goals scored for the team. However, in the shirt of “Albiceleste”, Messi has not yet been able to win a major title to bring glory to his national team.
The joke of fate
If Maradona senior (born 1960) broke up Argentina’s shirt color with the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, he created it as if he was playing with Leo Messi with 3 runners-up. Argentina has never stopped producing football talents but Messi has only made it to the finals of two major regional and international tournaments (World Cup 2014, Copa America 2016 and 2017) Messi and Argentina all failure: 1 time against the Germans in extra time and 2 consecutive times against Chile.
Most recently, at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, “veteran” Leo Messi and his teammates also entered the round of 1/8 (losing to France). Last year, in the land of “great rival” Brazil, they lost their bitter defeat 0-2 before the “no-heaven, land” South America in the Copa America semi-finals. A tournament where Messi was also fined by the Football Association of South America fined $ 1,500 and banned from playing a match due to indiscriminate statements about the Copa America championship of Brazil.
The pain of not being able to touch the World Cup gold cup, which Diego Maradona had won in the finals of this tournament in Mexico in 1986 has been haunting Messi’s mind for 11 years when he inherited the No.10 shirt. of “Golden Boy” in Argentina. At 33, it is no longer believed that Leo Messi can still shine at the 2022 World Cup to win the Gold Cup, especially when it is held in Qatar, Asia.
The most consolation is that Leo Messi will win the Copa America 2020 gold cup held in Argentina and Colombia (June 11 – July 11, 2020). But unexpectedly, Copa America 2020 was also delayed for 1 year because the pandemic caused Messi’s thirst for big titles when wearing the white-blue shirt lasted another year.
Not only Leo Messi but also the Argentinian “veterans” like Di Maria (1988), Gabriel Mercado (1987), Marcos Rojo (1990) … all do not have many opportunities to touch the Copa America gold cup. Affordable, Messi forever just “not king” despite winning countless titles with Barca? Fifteen years of playing for the national team, Leo Messi has not won any official tournament.
