Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has said he wants to fire his country to World Cup glory in Qatar.

Messi admits that the next tournament will probably be his last to win the trophy that has eluded him throughout his career.

The 33-year-old, a six-time Ballon d’Or winner, has won everything in the club game with Barcelona several times over, but his international trophy cabinet remains empty.

“The only goal I have now is to win the World Cup with the national team,” Messi said according to Goal.

The closest Messi has come to winning the World Cup, was as losing finalist against Germany in 2014.

Thursday’s clash with Ecuador gives him the chance to start building towards one last tilt at that goal. Argentina will then travel to Bolivia next Tuesday.
