Qatar 2022: It’s crazy Italy not in World Cup, says PSG ace Leo Messi

Paris Saint-Germain ace, Leo Messi, is amazed by Italy’s failure to qualify for the World Cup.

Argentina are expected to meet Italy tomorrow night at Wembley. The match sets the winners of Euro 2020 and 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 a 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. 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.”
