Messi Spits Fire Ahead Nigeria Clash

Lionel Messi has reiterated that he “cannot give up” his dreams of winning the World Cup for Argentina as they face Nigeria at the 2018 World Cup.

Argentina must win in the game billed for Tuesday to stand a chance of making it to the second round of the competition.

And Messi who turned 31 on Sunday, said the competition means much to the South American nation.

“It means so much because for Argentina the World Cup is special – and for me too. I’ve always had the dream of watching me raise the World Cup. And then seeing the emotion that goes with it,” he told Mirror UK.

“My hair stands on end just thinking about that moment. It would make millions of Argentine’s in the world happy. So we cannot give up on that dream.

“I have won all the most important tournaments but I am ambitious to the end. I would not like to retire from active football without being a world champion with my country.”
