BARCELONA star Lionel Messi will fire Argentina to World Cup glory, according to Playboy model Suzy Cortez.
Barcelona talisman Messi will be out to propel Argentina to the World Cup trophy, four years on from losing to Germany in the final.
The 30-year-old missed out on the prize in Brazil, struggling in the final as Mario Gotze struck deep into injury-time to win Germany the golden gong.
Messi has already quit international football once, with the Barcelona star walking away in 2016 after their Copa America final defeat to Chile.
He ultimately reversed that decision, though, and will lead Argentina as they aim to emulate the successful sides of 1978 and 1986.
And Brazilian model Cortez, who is also known for being a huge Barcelona fan, thinks Messi has what it takes to fire his country to the trophy.
“Argentina will be champions in Russia,” she told The Express. ”Lionel Messi (is) the best player in the world.
“He goes into the tournament at his very best, both physically and mentally.
“Even if the Argentina team is not good enough he can win games alone.”
