Messi won the Copa America trophy last season for Argentina, could the World Cup be next?

Argentina managed to get their hands on the trophy for the first time since 1993, and fans can watch Messi’s rally team talking to his teammates before defeating Brazil on their home turf.

“It’s no coincidence, you know what? This cup was supposed to be played in Argentina,” Messi can be heard saying in the trailer.

“God brought him here, brought him here to raise him in the Maracana, to make him more beautiful for all of us. Let’s go out confident and calm and we’ll bring this one home.

The clash against rivals Argentina was crucial for Messi given it was one of the only trophies he failed to win.

Former Manchester United winger Angel di Maria gave Messi’s side the lead by lifting the ball over Ederson.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner then had the chance to score on the kill, but he failed to beat Ederson after he stumbled. However, the miss didn’t matter as Argentina ran out the winners 1-0.

Messi gave a rallying cry to his teammates ahead of Argentina’s Copa America win over Brazil


Messi is currently preparing for his last World Cup, which will most likely be his last tournament with the national team of Argentina.

Having never won the trophy in the past, it would certainly be a fitting tribute for the greatest football player of all time to sign with this silverware.

The last time Argentina came close to winning the ultimate prize was in 2014, when they reached the final in Brazil.

Messi and co were beaten by Germany 1-0 in extra time, and they hope to do better this time around.
