It is the first time the Paris Saint-Germain striker has spoken openly about his future after the tournament, which starts on 20 November. Messi did not make it clear whether he would retire from the national team after Qatar.

Argentina won the World Cup in 1978 and 1986. The team will open their tournament on 22 November against Saudi Arabia in Group C before facing Mexico and Poland.

“I don’t know whether we are big favourites, but I believe Argentina is a candidate because of its history, which means even more now because of the way we got here,” Messi said. “But in a World Cup anything can happen, all the matches are very difficult. It isn’t always the favourites who win it.”
