Two stars Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are the top scorer in South America’s World Cup qualifiers, with 22 goals each.
The two players, who have not yet retired and can compete with Messi and Suarez, are Uruguayan Edinson Cavani, Manchester United striker, who has 16 goals, and Peruvian striker Jefferson Farfan, who has 15 goals.
Messi, “33,” and Suarez, “33,” are supposed to play the qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, which is supposed to be the last major tournament in which the two players participate at the international level.
However, Suarez believes that the current qualifiers will be the last in his international career, but the Barcelona captain did not reveal the fate of his continuation with his country and whether he will stay with him at the age of 36 and participate in other qualifying matches for the 2026 World Cup.
Suarez scored a goal in his country’s difficult 2-1 victory over Chile, and it is possible that his score will increase this year when he faces Ecuador and next month Colombia and Brazil in the World Cup qualifiers.
As for Messi, who led his team to victory over Ecuador last Friday by scoring the only goal in the match, his country will play tonight against Bolivia and next month against Paraguay and Peru.
