Former Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino believes Argentina can win the 2022 World Cup if they play for the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi in the final against France on Sunday.
Both teams made it to the final after Argentina thrashed Croatia 3-0 in the semi final while France edged Morocco 2-0.
However, Pochettino, who coached Messi at PSG in the past, believes that the rest of the Argentina players need to play for the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner in order to have any chance of winning the World Cup over France.
“When you’ve [Lionel] Messi in your team, you’ve to run for him. And when you’ve the ball, you’ve to give it to him as soon as possible so that he can create something. So the players know what they need to do in every single moment, to give Messi everything he needs to be decisive like he was on Tuesday night against Croatia.
“It has been one of the keys of this side [Argentina team], how they all believe that by playing for Messi, they can win the World Cup,” Pochettino said (via The Athletic).
