Argentina’s Goliath has everything to lose

It’s Messi vs Modrić  for a place at the greatest stage of International football – the World Cup finals

In a real life David and Goliath match-up between the tiny European nation of Croatia vs the South American giants – Argentina, it is Goliath who has seemingly everything to lose.

The hopes of both the teams lie on their respective talismans – Messi and Modrić.  

Momentum is building behind Messi’s push to cap his career with the biggest prize in the game. The 35-year-old Argentina playmaker has carried his team to the semifinals, almost in the same way Diego Maradona – the man with whom Messi is so often compared – led the South American nation to its second and most recent World Cup title in 1986.
