Argentina will be a good side when Messi retires. But they will struggle as evidence of Argentina still being Messi dependent in the WC. Alvarez is good, but he isn’t anywhere near Messi level.
I really do hope Argentina win the WC for Messi, but this French attack is going to be a whole new level for the Argentina defenders to cope with.
If Mbappe leads France to another WC trophy then he will be in the Pele stratosphere. And he is still only 23.
Messi will be another great club player who couldn’t get his hands on the WC trophy.
