With the Indian Premier League (IPL) over, Harbhajan Singh has shifted his focus from cricket to football.

And believe it or not, the veteran off-spinner is spending sleepless nights because he is backing South American giants Argentina to win their third World Cup tournament this year. The Argentines have earlier won the World Cup in 1978 and 1986.

Bhajji, who is an ardent Messi fan, took to Twitter to pose with a Messi effigy, and wrote, “Over the next one month I am gonna sleepless night for this man… GO MESSI GO!”

Hours from now, Messi and his boys face Iceland in their opening encounter of the FIFA World Cup. Iceland, who did exceptionally well in Euro 2016, might upset La Albiceleste with their attacking brand of football.

Bhajji will have to keep his fingers crossed because Argentina are placed in a tough group, which also comprises Croatia and Nigeria.
