Lucas Biglia has said he is hoping Lionel Messi can replicate Michael Jordan’s “Last Dance” at the 2022 World Cup with Argentina.

The AC Milan midfielder has been watching The Last Dance, which focuses on Jordan’s final season with the Chicago Bulls, and says it made him think about the Barcelona captain.

“I finished The Last Dance the other day, it was excellent,” he said. “It got me thinking, that in a few years, hopefully we will be able to watch something similar with 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 [with Jordan] 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. That I would like to see. I know what it would mean for him and for the Argentine people.”

Messi is yet to win a major title with Argentina. something that is often used against him when it comes to talking about the world’s greatest players. He could get another chance at the World Cup in Qatar, although he has said in the past he’s not 100% sure he’ll play at the tournament.
