Reuters) Top News The once unfathomable prospect of a World Cup without Lionel Messi and Argentina could become reality on Tuesday as South America’s thrilling 2018 qualification battle reaches its climax Two years after Argentina kicked off their troubled campaign with a 2-0 defeat at home to Ecuador Jorge Sampaoli’s side travel to Quito to face La Tri once more with their hopes hanging precariously The two-time World Cup-winners head into the final round of games in sixth place overall outside the top four positions which grant automatic qualification and trailing fifth-placed Peru who occupy the playoff spot on goal difference Yet with only two points separating third-placed Chile (26 points) with seventh-placed Paraguay (24) any number of permutations are possible Argentina can simplify the equation for their fans however if they manage to take all three points A victory would guarantee they finish no worse than fifth place putting them into a two-legged play-off against New Zealand they would be expected to win But achieving victory in the thin air of Quito which is 2850 metres (9350 feet) above sea level may be easier said than done The Argentinians have an abysmal record in away games against Ecuador with their last victory in Quito coming in 2001 Since then in World Cup qualifying games they have been beaten twice in 2005 and 2009 before scraping a 1-1 draw in 2013 Moreover Argentina face their moment of truth after a series of uninspiring performances that has left the rest of the footballing world scratching its head at how a squad bristling with so much attacking talent has found scoring so difficult ‘Hanging on‘ Despite being able to call upon Messi Sergio Aguero Gonzalo Higuain Paulo Dybala Mauro Icardi and Angel Di Maria throughout the campaign Argentina have only scored 16 times in 17 games Last Thursday’s 0-0 stalemate with Peru in Buenos Aires was Argentina’s third consecutive draw The Albiceleste have now scored only once in their past four qualifying games Sampaoli attempted to break that cycle last week with the surprise selection of Dario Benedetto in attack a gamble that failed to pay off after the Boca Juniors striker missed a string of chances It is unclear whether Sampaoli will persist with Benedetto again on Tuesday While Messi and his team-mates attempt to adjust to the lung-busting challenge of playing at altitude millions of compatriots will be holding their breath The sense of anxiety was reflected by La Nacion newspaper “Argentina is not on the edge of the precipice – it is hanging on the cornice vertically” the paper commented Elsewhere on Tuesday Chile could seal their qualification with victory over Brazil in Sao Paulo Brazil have already qualified for the finals and are guaranteed top spot Uruguay meanwhile need only take a point in their home qualifier against already-eliminated Bolivia to be certain of progressing One of the most high-stakes games comes in Lima where Peru will aim to qualify for their first World Cup finals since 1982 when they take on Colombia Colombia were moments from qualifying for the World Cup last Thursday before two last-gasp goals from Paraguay turned a 1-0 win into a 2-1 defeat That win kept Paraguay’s qualification bid alive and a home win over Venezuela on Tuesday could see them seal their place to Russia depending on results elsewhere For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Pratap Bhanu Mehta | Updated: July 3 2015 1:26 am Lalit Modi may or may not be innocent But it is hard to shake the impression that when the government does proceed against an individual it is usually because it wants to target them for a political reason Related News The Narendra Modi government’s credibility is at serious risk on three fronts: corruption communalism and dissent Under a seemingly placid surface undercurrents are taking shape which if not checked have the ability to derail the government The aggressiveness of its own supporters the low credibility of the opposition and the drumbeat of its own propaganda may blind the government to them But it would be foolish not to heed the warning signs Take corruption In the Lalit Modi saga the government seems to be feeling a false sense of reprieve It seems to think that the longer the list of people Lalit Modi names the less muck will stick on this government Where an entire political establishment is at fault no one can be singled out Second the Congress is not entirely clear on its line of attack It cannot come clean on its own perfidies And it has indiscriminately expanded the ambit of its attack on Vasundhara Raje in a way that may not stand scrutiny Third the media’s credibility is low: it has been repeatedly shown to be selective in whom it targets; rather than its own credible investigations it has become dependent on sound bytes and half-baked leaks and it goes into a sulk when Lalit Modi refuses to oblige Under such circumstances it is easy to be deluded that there will be more heat than light in this matter But in politics heat singes The fact that Lalit Modi is emerging as an insurgent hero should worry the government Shorn of technicalities the fact remains that two senior ministers with whom Lalit Modi has a direct or indirect financial relationship helped him in ways that go beyond a humanitarian gesture The government has said nothing that dispels this impression That Congress politicians might also have helped him is neither here nor there But this case has established three institutional points decisively First do not expect any government to dispassionately investigate the financial shadiness in Indian cricket This is so for a structural reason: the Enforcement Directorate comes under politicians who are themselves involved in the game Those who need to be investigated are the bosses of the investigators Second Lalit Modi may or may not be innocent But it is hard to shake the impression that when the government does proceed against an individual it is usually because it wants to target them for a political reason Third he has managed to revive the appalling spectre of plutocratic collusion in India’s ruling class between the media politicians business and sport: a clubby elite decamped to London who all happen to run into each other all the time This is an elite that will feign fights over everything in the national interest but become cosy buddies over drinks in London The anger this will generate should not be underestimated And it will rub off on the government since it is now positioning itself at the centre of this club rather than distancing itself from it It is a topsy-turvy world when Lalit Modi can position himself as a victim and an anti-corruption crusader But the government has to ask the question: Why does Lalit Modi sound more credible on this issue than the government Put all this in the context of other allegations in Maharashtra the increasingly murderous Vyapam scam and the sheen is gone from the BJP There are two other issues that are not politically big yet but are a canary in the mine The riots in Ballabhgarh Haryana will rebound on the BJP This was the first test of a post-Narendra Modi BJP state government handling a communal dispute and it has not come off with flying colours What the BJP’s game is can be debated: controlled polarisation that does not make dramatic headlines in terms of violence but is nevertheless an insidious form of communal mobilisation that is intent on showing minorities their place BJP supporters will scream exaggeration at this accusation But if this fear is indeed exaggerated the proper response is to show how state institutional action can be genuinely credible and above communal politics The mere fact of making light of this incident or defensively pointing out that riots have happened elsewhere is evading the problem not solving it A third area of increasing institutional concern is the crackdown on NGOs No sensible person is against accountability and some cleaning up of the system in terms of getting NGOs to abide by reporting requirements was justifiable But what is happening is far beyond accountability It is more like a petulant fearful state targeting dissent P Chidambaram had set in motion the process of giving the state more power over NGOs taking away the protections they had This government seems to want even more While some proposals for online reporting of the activities of NGOs make sense the infinite expansion of the definition of what counts as anti-national is now becoming insidious Human rights are anti-national Working on corruption is anti-national Missionaries of charity are anti-national Jeopardising economic security is anti-national And what is “economic security” Whatever the government says it is This is Orwellian speak at its most bizarre (Full disclosure: I work for an organisation that receives FCRA funding) And who can hold government accountable for the action it can take without supplying any reason whatsoever The government’s actions are damaging India far more than any NGO ever could We always knew that with this government it would be a contest between its baser authoritarian instincts and an opportunistic sense of institutional propriety The baser instincts are winning A sense of fear and intimidation is in the air But what is at stake in all three challenges is the credibility of the government Its lack of institutional credibility will also damage its economic agenda as the UPA found out Taxi driver stories are cute and overused But this one seems appropriate On a recent visit to Uttarakhand a taxi driver from the state was waxing eloquent about governance And then he said of Narendra Modi “roj ek naya dhol bajate hain (he plays a new drum everyday)” No matter how eloquent the prime minister’s own drumbeat cannot disguise the rot he is letting seep in or drown the silences that will irk the voter The
