In soccer, luck has little to do with it, or that is what is thought, because it has been shown that in addition to talent, quality and training, there are strange factors that work against some teams, such as Argentina in the World Cup in Qatar 2022.

That’s right, Argentina is one of the countries that, in addition to facing Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland, will have to face luck, cabals or curses during the World Cup.

Argentina is a country that, by tradition, is related to these issues of luck, cabals and curses, because Throughout history many stories are known in Argentine soccer.

Since Carlos Salvador Bilardo crossing at the exit of the players when they jumped onto the field Even things that players and fans do like wearing the same underwear, not washing the shirt or following the routine they did in the last victory to perfection.

With Copa América, but without the World Cup

Lionel Messi managed to win a title with his team, a pending account on his list, but The big one is missing and La Scaloneta is going from strength to strength to achieve itbut here we start with the curses.

No team that won the Copa América went to the World Cup to win it, so, The Argentine National Team with its status as champion of America would be practically ruled out to win in Qatar 2022.

The curse of Argentina with World Cups that end in number 2

All the World Cups that end in number two are a true failure for Argentina. I mean, every 20 years this curse settles like a black cloud on the ‘Albiceleste’.

In Chile 1962 and did not go beyond the group stage, in Spain 1982 they were eliminated by Brazil and Diego Armando Maradona was expelled. In Korea-Japan 2002 they did not go beyond the group stage with Marcelo Bielsa either.

Lionel Scaloni will have to seek to break this curse of his Argentina in Qatar 2022because history dictates that nothing will go well for them.

The broken promise to the Virgin of Jujuy

We put the name of Carlos Salvador Bilardo again, because He is one of the main figures who play with the “strangers” off the pitch and here is proof of it.

Doctor Bilardo and his players in their preparation for the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, were in a town near Bolivia and right there were entrusted to the Virgin of Jujuy.

They made him a promise to return if they won the championship, they won it at the Azteca Stadium, but, They did not return to fulfill their promise with the Virgin of Jujuy.

And since then Argentina has not been able to be world champion. The positive thing for Messi and La Scaloneta is that eight of the players who were in the 1986 World Cup returned to fulfill their promise.
