Lionel Messi’s former Argentina teammate, Lucas Biglia, has claimed that the Barcelona skipper can have his own Michael Jordan "Last Dance" moment if he manages to lead his national team to FIFA World Cup win in Qatar in 2022.

Since sports have been halted currently due to the coronavirus outbreak, several fans have been binge-watching Netflix, especially its original series on NBA legend Jordon’s exploits under immense pressure and expectations while with Chicago Bulls.

Messi, who has achieved almost everything on a plate for Barcelona, including a record six Ballon d’Or awards, that are the testimony to his individual brilliance as a soccer player, is yet to replicate his success for Argentina. In the last six years, Messi’s Argentina reached three finals but failed to win even one and that includes two back to back losses in Copa America (2015 and 2016) to Chile.

As the Argentinian playmaker approaches his 33rd birthday, he is running out of chances to have his success with his national team. Biglia, who played for Argentina between 2011 and 2018 and currently plays for AC Milan, has insisted that Messi has some unfinished business with his national team.

“I finished The Last Dance the other day, it was excellent. It got me thinking that in a few years, hopefully we will be able to watch something similar to our own phenomenon [Messi]. [We could] learn a mountain of things about his day-to-day. Because you see him train, you see him play but so many things happen on a day-to-day basis that you don't know about, as we see in the series."

"The scene that I would like to see in the future is the one when Jordan is hugging the [NBA] trophy and crying. I would like to see that with Messi and the World Cup,” Biglia told FM94.7.

Messi’s final chance of winning the World Cup will be at the 2022 edition in Qatar when the Argentinian superstar will be 35.

The AC Milan midfielder further added, "That I would like to see. I know what it would mean for him and the Argentine people.”

Even though Biglia is hoping Messi ends his career on a high like NBA superstar Jordan, the former Lazio midfielder has also pointed out Messi is the humbler of the two.

“He [Messi] always puts himself at your level. Not just because of his humility, but to make you feel comfortable. He looks to build a relationship with his team-mates by relating to them. That's what makes him great. There are no words to describe him as a player. As a person, he is 10, 100 times better,” Biglia added.
