All roads lead to the Al Bait Stadium in Al Khor, Qatar this Sunday as the FIFA World Cup 2022 opening ceremony kicks off the quadrennial football extravaganza ahead of the tournament opener between the hosts and Ecuador. Cultural events depicting the heritage and culture of the host countries and grand opening ceremonies with performances by leading global singers and artists have been a prominent feature of football World Cup opening ceremonies in the past.


Lionel Scaloni reports that Messi is fit to play despite missing training recently. Lionel Scaloni's coaching staff is careful not to overload him on a daily basis so he doesn't have any muscle problems. That is why the player did not practice with the ball on Friday or Saturday. The concern was sparked by Messi leaving the training ground 10 minutes late on Saturday and exercising himself without attending to the ball. The concern was sparked by Messi leaving the training ground 10 minutes late on Saturday and exercising himself without attending to the ball. But Messi is fine. Argentina can breathe easy. It's worth noting that Messi played his last league game for PSG on Sunday, November 13 (against Auxerre) before joining up with Argentina, and then played the full game in Wednesday's friendly against the UAE.

Football has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. It serves as a beacon of hope in directionless societies. A beautiful game that embodies the abstract emotions of joy, pride, pain and unity and acts as a way out of difficult and distressing situations. Nowhere is this more evident than in the South American nation of Argentina, which has offered the world a steady stream of world-class footballers who have etched their names into the game's long illustrious annals. The South American nation's cultural practices reflect the continent's pervasive belief in the existence of polar opposites and the concept of equal exchange. Elements associated with the kingdom evoke a sense of struggle between the divine and the demonic. A physical manifestation of pragmatism and surrealism. Football came to the country in the early 1800s with an influx of British settlers who, after independence, seized huge opportunities in the Latin region from their Spanish overlords, who ran the country's banks, railway lines and agricultural fields. The early footballing institutions were created as Alexander Hutton's efforts ensured that the South American nation would irrevocably fall in love with the beautiful game. While the British introduced the sport to Argentina, it was mastered by Italians who flocked to the Río de la Plata region in the 1870s after economic hardships in their homeland. The Italian diaspora integrated seamlessly into the land bordering the Andes, perhaps because of the similarities in their language, and more than half of today's Argentine population is of Italian descent.


The country's volatile nature extends beyond the indescribable quality of football produced by the famous blue and white-clad Jugadores. The historical struggle between rival ideologies surrounding the socio-economic and political climate of the region is due to the fluctuations in the rule of various power magnates and the common knowledge of the common masses. Many regimes throughout history have exploited the game to twist the narrative to their advantage in what could be called 'exploding' countries for lack of a better word, and Argentina is no exception. Jorge Rafael Videla, the military man who came to power in 1976, wanted Argentina to host its first World Cup, two years before the overthrow of former president Juan Peron's wife, Isabel Martínez de Persona. His nation's image in the eyes of the world, he was ready to take whatever steps were necessary. That's 34 more than Scoloni should have received. "It was like we were starting from scratch, and it wasn't easy for any coach," says Tagliafico, one of seven players remaining from 2018. "We knew Scaloni as an assistant. He recently retired and was closer to the players, in a kind of intermediate, neutral zone, in an area between the players and the coach. He had the courage to help. That's the key word: help.  “He knew he wasn't going to be a [permanent] coach. He would even tell us that. ‘I’m here to re-identify the people on the team and help you grow.’ Expectations are lowered and we can start building without winning, winning, winning, winning. Things started to look better. A few more games, a few more, and he started to realize — and so did we — that you don't need that much experience to be a coach; All you needed was someone to help bring everyone together. And so it began. "


Tagliafico says Argentina had a "great journey" after beating Brazil 2-0 in the semi-finals of the 2019 Copa America. But looking back on this four-year transition, this is the moment he considers the most important. It was also the last time they lost. “There was a new generation and an old generation. We lost, but learned, got to know each other and ourselves. We were growing up. That's where the federation manager was stuck. There were ups and downs between 2019 and the next Copa America, but we felt like something was building. Fortunately, we also got results that made sure nothing was broken. “You will be in the next Copa America. Everything is in place. But if you lose, so be it. Something might break. A relationship. Or Leo might decide to stop. Weight loss for success. We have not achieved anything for a long time. It created stress – and it also creates hope. For Leo, [Angel] Di Maria, players who reached the final but didn't win, it was a different story. Emotionally it was the best thing that could have happened. When we returned with the cup, it was covid time, but the streets were full, like the world was ending. When asked to explain why Argentina reacts as they do to football, he pauses. "Football changes our lives," he says at the start of a long explanation, a social analysis. And then, finally, he stopped, laughed, and said: "Well, that's crazy for all of us, obviously."
