"I will go on foot to San Nicolas," he said to TyC Sports earlier this week. This is significant because it's the site where hundreds of thousands travel to each where to worship at and is considered a crucial center of Argentine Catholicism.

And he won't be alone either. The Washington Post reports that, "If Argentina wins and Messi follows through on his promise, he'll be joined by teammate Sergio Aguero of Manchester City, who upped the ante."

"He told TyC Sports that not only will the pair make a pilgrimage to San Nicolas, but they'd run the distance."

The only worry is the pair being given time off from the respective team duties for the trek on 25 September.

Given that Barcelona have lost Neymar and Suarez is failing to deliver, we doubt they'll be too chuffed about waving off their talisman. Even if he has had a calling.
