After a good night in which Lionel Messi spread his football magic on the field and scored two goals and contributed to a goal against Honduras, the Argentine captain analyzed his wonderful start with his team Paris Saint-Germain, his brilliance with his country and his dreams in the World Cup in Qatar.
Messi led Argentina to control their match with Honduras to win 3-0 in a friendly last night in Miami, as Argentina continues to develop its style two months before the start of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
This win extended Argentina's unbeaten run to 34 matches, and Argentina will play another friendly match against Jamaica next Tuesday in New Jersey.
Argentina, twice World Cup champions, are among the favorites to win the World Cup in Qatar, and will play their first match in the group stage against Saudi Arabia on November 22.
