LONDON (Reuters) – Argentina players will do everything in their power in Russia to help the team lift the World Cup trophy again after falling at the last hurdle four years ago in Brazil, defender Marcos Rojo has said.
The 28-year-old Manchester United centre back, capped 56 times by Argentina, and his team mates suffered a last-gasp 1-0 defeat by Germany in the 2014 final.
“It’s a really important thing and a big deal for any Argentinian to wear that shirt,” Rojo told United’s website. “We really feel the shirt a lot and we defend our colours.
“We give everything when we are wearing it and we want payback for the way things happened at the last World Cup.
“We will do everything to give our fans the possibility to celebrate winning the trophy again.”
