Lionel Messi is all but set to experience the biggest disappointment of his football career, and Argentina’s biggest disappointment since 1970, after Argentina played out a 0-0 draw with Peru in Buenos Aires, meaning they face a make or break tie with Ecuador if they have any hopes of entering the qualification slots for Russia 2018 World Cup.
The expectant crowd in the Buenos Aires Stadium, Argentina, expected their home team to easily swipe past Peru, but Argentina’s deadly combination of Messi, Di Maria, Higuain and others couldn’t just find the back of the net, as Argentina, the runner-up to Germany in the World Cup three years ago in Brazil, plays on Tuesday against Ecuador .
Argentina is in sixth place, with the top four teams advancing automatically. The fifth-place team can advance by winning a playoff against New Zealand.
Brazil has already qualified, and drew 0-0 against Bolivia on Thursday. Brazil has 38 points, followed by: Uruguay (28), Chile (26), Colombia (26), Peru (25), Argentina (25) and Paraguay (24).
