PSG ace Leo Messi: Crazy Italy not in World Cup


PSG ace Leo Messi is amazed by Italy's failure to qualify for the World Cup.

Argentina meet Italy tomorrow night at Wembley. The match sets the winners of Euro 2020 and the Copa America against one another.

Messi told TyC Sports: “It's crazy that they won the Euros and are not at the World Cup. That Italy are again not at a World Cup, with what that means and Italy's relationship with the World Cup is a shame.

“I have team-mates and friends in the team, good people who I have a good relationship with and who have helped me a lot since I've been here. Above all [Marco] Verratti and it's a real shame."

He added: “It's good test for us. They are the champions of Europe and would have been World Cup favourites had they been there.

“They were unlucky not to be there but were not able to go through their. When they had the chance to win the previous match, before the play-off, and they didn't and then, for football reasons are not at the World Cup."
