Messi: I’ll Walk 65 Kilometres On Foot If Argentina Win The World Cup In Russia

Argentina captain Lionel Messi has underlined the importance of next year’s World Cup to his career by vowing to complete a 65-kilometre pilgrimage from his hometown Rosario to San Nicolas on foot should the Albiceleste go on to win the World Cup in Russia.

“If we win the World Cup, I promise to walk from Rosario to San Nicolas,” he said to TyC Sports.

And with Argentina no longer having to worry about whether or not they will be participating in Russia, Messi is free to admit the team almost went “crazy” as they struggled to book passage to the finals.

La Albiceleste only narrowly clinched a spot at next year’s tournament during the final round of CONEMBOL qualifying, beating Ecuador 3-1 while Peru and Colombia drew 1-1.
