Lionel Messi’s Argentina arrive in Ecuador for deciding FIFA World Cup qualifier

about the video
The once unfathomable prospect of a World Cup without Lionel Messi and Argentina could become reality on Tuesday as South America’s thrilling 2018 qualification battle reaches its climax. Argentina, the two-time World Cup-winners, head into the final round of games in sixth place overall, outside the top four positions which grant automatic qualification and trailing fifth-placed Peru, who occupy the playoff spot on goal difference. A victory would guarantee Argentina finish no worse than fifth place, putting them into a two-legged play-off against New Zealand they would be expected to win. (Hindustan Times )
