#Lionel #Messi #propels #Argentina #World #Cup #final
Argentina is a win away from its first World Cup in 36 years. For Lionel Messi, that means he’s one win away from the one title that’s eluded him during his career.
Per Oddschecker, Argentina is the current favorite at -115 to win the World Cup.
Messi’s reputation stacks up against the greatest soccer players of all-time. He’s a seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, has been named Best Player in La Liga eight times and is a four-time Champions League champion.
In 17 seasons at Barcelona, Messi recorded 474 goals as he rose up the rank of all-time greats. The one thing his resume is lacking is a World Cup win. In his fifth attempt, he’s looking to finish what he came close to accomplishing in 2014. In Messi’s third World Cup appearance, Argentina lost to Germany 1-0 in the final at Rio de Janeiro.
