Qatar 2022: Messi will crown a goat if he wins the World Cup – Carragher

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher is now hoping Lionel Messi can win the 2022 World Cup with Argentina.

According to him, this would cement the 35-year-old’s status as the all-time greatest (goat).

Messi will lead his country to the semi-finals against Croatia on Tuesday.

If they emerge victorious, they will face either France or Morocco in the final.

France eliminated England, while Morocco ousted Messi’s eternal rival, Cristiano Ronaldo, from the tournament with a 1-0 victory over Portugal.

Carragher, speaking to Sky Sports, feels the stage is set for Messi to write history.

“I’d like to see Argentina win the title for Lionel Messi. France is the best team but maybe it’s written for Messi and Argentina to win it. After they lost that first game, they built on that. The support they have in the stadiums is absolutely fantastic.

“If Messi can lift the World Cup, it will cement him as the greatest player to ever play this game,” Carragher said.
