It has been an awesome World Cup so far for goals and attacking football, on Sunday Lionel Messi joins the party!
Arguably the best player on the planet, Messi is under pressure to perform on the biggest stage of all to ensure his legacy as one of the greatest to ever light up the Beautiful Game.
And, Messi comes into the match against Bosnia-Herzegovina off the back of scoring against Slovenia in Argentina’s final World Cup friendly.
The suspicion has been that Messi’s injury and rest at the back end of 2013 should allow the Argentina striker the ability to explode at the World Cup after many seasons of little down time.
There is no shortage of Argentina players who will be looking to provide Messi with an assist – Angel Di Maria, Ever Banega and Sergio Aguero almost guarantees the Barcelona striker will not be short of service.
Messi sounded hugely upbeat in the build-up to Argentina versus Bosnia-Herzegovina: “I’m very eager to play in this great Maracaná stadium for the first time in my life and to get off to a good start in the World Cup. It would be beautiful to win the World Cup; it’s always been a dream of mine. I think that this moment we’re currently going through could determine if we make that dream come true.”
There will be huge support for Messi from the Argentina faithful in Rio, surely Messi will come to the party and make his mark on the World Cup!
