Lionel Messi Promises the Gallagher Brothers to Beat Germany at World Cup
Soccer star Lionel Messi has vowed to knock Germany out of the World Cup on Saturday, July 3 - as a favor to former Oasis rockers Liam Gallagher and Noel Gallagher. The Argentine ace lines up against Germany in the quarter-finals of the tournament this weekend after the European side put England out of the competition last month.
And he has promised the Gallagher brothers he will help avenge their country's humiliating 4-1 defeat - after admitting Oasis albums have inspired his performances at the soccer showpiece in South Africa.
Messi says, "If they love England as much they do (English soccer side) Manchester City, you can tell them from me I will do everything I can to defeat the team who knocked their beloved England out of the cup."
