Leo is a football hero, but he needs luck to win the World Cup: Iniesta
The actor had earlier indicated that he would retire from international competitions through this tournament.
Although he has worn big boots for many clubs, fans prefer to see Messi in the Argentinian shirt.
When Messi announced that he might not play another World Cup, fans flocked to the venue to express their sadness.
🇦🇷 Lio Scaloni: “Hopefully this will not be Messi’s last World Cup. He is happy on the pitch and makes many people happy, not just the Argentines. And if we take care of him, there may be more games for him because the football world is asking for him.” @TNTSportsAR pic.twitter.com/geUkj1t1pl

Andre Iniesta, former Barcelona star and Spanish midfielder, has given his opinion on this matter. He said that Lionel Messi is a football legend and if he wants to win the World Cup, luck will help him.
In an interview with Mathrubhumi, he spoke about his friend and teammate Messi.
‘Leo is a football legend who has played in four World Cups so far but never won one. The closest he came to the World Cup was in 2014 when Argentina reached the final. Along with the game, we need luck and the support of the team,’ said Iniesta.
Meanwhile, Argentina’s first match is against Saudi Arabia on November 26. Mexico and Poland are the other teams in Group C along with Argentina. Argentina will face Mexico on November 27 and Poland on December 1.
