The fear of Argentina’s absence from the 2018 World Cup has lingered following the country’s poor run of results in the South American qualifiers. This came after an uninspiring draw to Venezuela last month. After the inability to secure a goal, the country was rescued with Rolf Fletscher scoring an own goal. This left Argentina in the fifth position.
Now, the country’s hope of reaching the 2018 World Cup is hanging in the balance on Thursday after another stalemate on a nail-biting day of South American qualifying action. It was another heartbreaking display by the world champions trying to secure a place on the table. Following a 0-0 draw with Peru, Argentina is left outside the automatic qualification place as they head into the final round of fixtures next Tuesday.
Barcelona star Messi was left stranded as his team mates could not help with the passes and converts he desired. Argentina’s final qualifier is a trip to a land where she holds a poor record of winnings and the final standings could change dramatically depending on Tuesday’s results.
Where the world champions fail to give a clean win on Tuesday, it becomes a WORLD CUP WITHOUT MESSI.
