Manchester City to make 357 million pounds bid for Lionel Messi?

To put it simply, Uruguay only needs a draw at home to Bolivia, which has lost nine of 10 qualifiers in Montevideo, to ensure its spot in Russian Federation next summer, however even a loss isn't likely to bump them from the competition.

Argentina have it all to do.

The PSG forward and the Argentine captain always publicly showed their friendship during the Brazilian's time at Barcelona, so it would come as no surprise that Neymar wants to see Messi in Russian Federation come next summer.

The match was played at La Bombonera, home of Boca Juniors, and only a win would be enough to put Argentina through.

Renato Cesarini and Humberto Maschio were both dismissed, leaving Adolfo Pedernera to take charge of the 1970 World Cup qualifying campaign. If they win their final match, they are guaranteed a playoff place against New Zealand in November.

Brazil boss Tite is expected to play a very strong side against Chile.

Argentina made life even more hard for themselves after they were held to a goalless draw by Peru in their last home match. The magic of Lionel Messi could not drag Argentina to victory, nor could the constant growl of La Bombonera.

Argentina can simplify the equation for their fans, however, if they manage to take all three points.

Argentina, on paper, look favourite for three points, but the way things have gone for the Albiceleste this campaign, anything is possible.

On Wednesday, they are away to Ecuador at the dreaded altitude of Quito, conditions they despise.

For some Argentines, the troubles of the national team have been a long time coming.

The scenarios for how each team can qualify for the World Cup are many.

"Argentina is all at sea".

"I believe in projects and planning, but in our football, there's nothing". He dipped out on a home tournament four years later as well, with manager Aime Jacquet instead choosing to build his team around Zinedine Zidane.

Heading into the final game of CONMEBOL qualifying Jorge Sampaoli's side sit sixth in the group, outside the qualification places and in danger of missing the 2018 finals.

In addition, a Brazil victory against Chile could aid Argentina in possibly grabbing an automatic qualification spot.

One of the most high-stakes games comes in the Peruvian capital of Lima, where Peru will aim to qualify for their first World Cup finals since 1982 when they host Colombia. And at 30, you also need to absorb the cold hard stat that Russian Federation 2018 may be his last FIFA World Cup.
