FIFA World Cup 2022 is around the corner, with players from 32 countries competing for the ultimate prize in football. Players will likely sweat a lot in the humidity of Qatar and perhaps be relying upon multiple drinks breaks, but for sure, the competition will never yield its glitter or glory, nor the spirit it offers.

Unlike the last two World Cups, the competition in Qatar would perhaps be the swansong for 35-year-old Argentinian Lionel Messi and 37-year-old Portuguese star Cristino Ronaldo in the event, with both layers shouldering the dreams of millions, not just from their respective countries but from around the world

For Messi, the World Cup always eluded him, despite him pushing harder every four years to come closer to the ultimate glory, yet failing in winning it. Despite an average squad and not much option on the bench, Argentina exceeded the expectations of many in Brazil and Russia yet lost battles they should have won. However, this has changed, and Argentina’s dependence on veteran players, including Javier Mascherano, has finally ended. Today, Argentina is tipped as the favourite to lift the waiting for, a team equally strong, with a mixture of young blood and veterans, similar to what he experienced as a 16 year-old debuting in World Cup 2006, alongside Juan Roman Riquelme, Pablo Aimar, Esteban Cambiasso, and others.
