“You’ve got Kane, Mbappe, Lionel Messi at Argentina,” Barnes said of the players with the potential to the MVP award of Qatar 2022.

“I wouldn’t say they’re dark horses because they’re one of the favourites. But I think that depending on how well England do, Harry Kane should be up there.

“Mbappe is obviously going to be up there as well, but Lionel Messi is my favourite player of modern times. I’ve got a sneaky feeling about Lionel.”

Messi has scored 90 goals in 164 games for Argentina. He has scored 12 goals and registered 14 assists in 19 games across all competitions for Paris Saint-Germain this season.

Argentina are in Group C of the 2022 FIFA World Cup alongside Poland, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia.

The Albiceleste won the FIFA World Cup at Argentina ’78 and Mexico ’86 editions.
