At the time of writing this short informational article on one of Southeast Asia’s leading online gaming and gambling agencies, the moment you arrive at its opening web page, excitement takes over. That is to say that you are as mad about football as the millions of other fans from not just Southeast Asia, but around the world are. The welcoming message on the agen SBOBET home page is that of the iconic image of the world’s current greatest player, one Lionel Messi, star player of one of the world’s best and most famous soccer clubs, Barcelona FC, and demoralized captain of Argentina, three times champions of the world.
But why would the world’s greatest soccer player be so down? Soccer fans who know their stuff will tell you straight off the bat that this is because both Messi and his national team, in at least the last twelve years or so, and particularly since the then Argentinean coach reverently handed him the captain’s armband, failed to win any major trophies. Years from now, football history will recall how so let down he was that Messi quit the national team altogether.
A national crisis prevailed and thankfully, an entire nation was able to persuade the football icon to return to duty. Football pundits who know how to strategize in order to call the correct match results may also argue that it is not Messi, but one Cristiano Ronaldo who is the greatest. He is currently a formidable member of the world’s greatest ever soccer club, in terms of trophies won at least, Real Madrid.
They will also tell you how this majestic captain stood on the sidelines, critically injured and cajoled Portugal to win their first ever major trophy.
