Terrible for Leo Messi & Argentina
Will Leo Messi and Argentina be at the 2018 World Cup in Russia?
Heading into the final match of the South American qualifiers, the answer is no.
Argentina suffered a major setback on Thursday night when they were held to a goalless draw at home against Peru.
The result left Argentina sixth in the table, while Peru are in fifth.
Argentina’s final match with away in Ecuador, in the altitude of Quito.
The good news for Leo Messi and company is that they head into the game masters of their own fate.
If Argentina can win in Ecaudor’s they’ll at least finish in fifth place. That would set up a playoff against New Zealand.
But Argentina have a poor record in the Ecuadoran capital, losing two out of three of their last World Cup qualifiers there and drawing the other.
The Argentines last World Cup qualifying win in Quito came in 2001.
Ole: ‘We’re f***ed’
After the match against Peru ended, leading Argentinian paper Ole posted a tweet which went viral.
With an image of Leo Messi stood alone on the pitch with his head in his hand, the captain read “We’re f***ed!”
