Lionel Messi made a promise with Sergio Agüero at an interview to Argentine channel TyC Sport. The promise is that if they win the tournament next year, they will walk from Rosario, Messi’s hometown, down to San Nicolás, a journey of about 68km that would take around 14 hours to complete.
“Leo, let’s make a promise together if you are up for it. I have faith in the national team. We go walking to San Nicolás if we are champions, are you up for it?” Messi’s response? “Obviously.”
And you, What will you do if Messi wins the World Cup?
