rgentine goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez has said Lionel Messi should lead the South American nation at the 2026 FIFA FIFA World Cup.
Messi has hinted that the 2022 World Cup final could be his final official appearance for the South Americans, but Martinez want the forward to continue with the national team.
In a media chat, Martinez said:
“For me he can play until he is 50. He looks really sharp and he looks so good. He makes things look easy – it’s the hardest thing to do.
“To understand how well he hits the ball is something. He puts the ball there and looks at you and hits the ball top corner, if he misses he hits the post, or crossbar. That left foot. He is small, but so strong.”
