In chatting with journalist Sebastian Vignolo, the Paris Saint-Germain star gave his opinion on how Argentina came to the dispute in Qatar, after winning the 2021 Copa América against Brazil in the Maracana. Messi does not see Lionel Scaloni’s team as the favorites, but they are in a very good position in the battle.

– I don’t know if we are the great favourites, but Argentina are always favourites, because of history, because of what they mean. More so now that we’re here. But we are not the best for me. There are other teams above us today, but we are very close – he explained.

Messi confirmed that he was physically fit after going through the full preparatory season, unlike the previous year, when his future came late and he only appeared for the first time with Paris Saint-Germain with the ongoing French Championship. He ensures he now has “another mindset, another mindset” – and he made no secret of his concerns in November, when the World Cup begins.

– I’m counting the days of the World Cup. There is a bit of anxiety and nervousness at the same time. I want it to be close, the nervousness of being there, what’s going to happen. To be the last of how we’re going. We can’t wait for the time to come, and there is also a fear that we want to do well.
