Bournemouth fullback Zemura: My big World Cup wish for Messi

Bournemouth full-back Jordan Zemura has revealed his one big wish related to the World Cup.

The defender spoke about enjoying the action in Qatar, while stating that he has only one hope for the tournament.

Zemura, a Zimbabwe international, wants to see Argentina and PSG legend Lionel Messi get his hands on the trophy.

Zemura told the Daily Echo: "I want him to do it.

"I'd love an African team to do it, obviously for Africa, so I'm team Senegal, even team Morocco and team Africa.

"But I want him to do it, the little GOAT. I want Messi to win it.

"Hopefully, it's his fifth World Cup. I'd love him to win it."
