Messi hat-trick eases Argentina to victory over Haiti

Lionel Messi

To win it with Argentina would be something unique'.

The Argentina superstar will be 35 by the time the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar gets underway and may not be as effective then as he is now.

Despite this, Messi has acknowledged he would have already won football's most prestigious accolade in a World Cup medal if he made a decision to represent the country he grew up in during his teenage years.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor insists he would love to feature as a professional for the team where he began his footballing education.

Argentina lock horns with Iceland on June 16, before taking on Croatia five days later and ending their group games against Nigeria on June 26.

It was in stark contrast to recent matches played in Argentina, when Messi and his teammates were insulted as they laboured through qualifying, eventually booking their place in Russian Federation in their final match.

There were two different classes of teams on the field Tuesday, as Argentina controlled the pace, created a number of golden opportunities beyond the four goals and kept Haiti away from goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

Long weekend sleep may compensate for short weekday sleep
Bets are off for people over the age of 65, where there was no link between the amount of sleep and higher risk of death. They are the ones who can compensate with longer rest on the weekends , because there is not as much of a deficit.
