With the 2018 World Cup in full swing CEO at JetWave International, Isaac Jackson has revealed that in the absence of US representation at the tournament, he will be supporting Argentina.
As a passionate sports fan, Mr. Jackson is excited for the month-long event to get underway. The JetWave International CEO is a supporter of London-based, English Premier League side, Tottenham Hotspur, who are currently managed by the ex-Argentine footballer, Mauricio Pochettino and that’s where the connection with Argentina began.
Not ignoring the obvious, Argentina’s most well-known player, Lionel Messi plays a part in Mr. Jackson’s affection for the side. Regarded as the best footballer in the world by many, Messi has won every major honor in football; however, the World Cup has eluded him. At 30 years old, it’s possible that this will be Messi’s last World Cup tournament and Mr. Jackson hopes the Barcelona star can inspire Argentina to victory.
Mr. Jackson’s favorite players are center-forward Gonzalo Higuain of Juventus, and PSG midfielder Ángel Di María and he is excited by the prospect of seeing them shine on the world stage.
Currently ranked fifth in the world, Argentina feature in group D alongside Iceland, Croatia, and Nigeria. They kick off their World Cup campaign on Saturday, June 16th against Iceland in the Spartak Stadium.
Mr. Jackson is confident that Argentina will top Group D and he hopes that Manager, Jorge Sampaoli can guide the side to the final, set to take place on July 15th at The Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
“I was brought up in an athletic family. I have baby pictures holding soccer balls, baseballs, and footballs. I believe that the skills you learn from playing sport, particularly team sports, can be transferred into business. Sport can unite people, and I look forward to cheering on Argentina with the JetWave family,” Commented Mr. Jackson.
Founded in November 2017 and based in Knoxville, Tennessee, JetWave International is a trusted business and consulting firm founded on previous experiences and principles. CEO Issac Jackson is an ardent sports fan with a love for the beautiful game. This could be Messi’s last chance to lift the most coveted trophy in football, and Mr. Jackson is hopeful the iconic number 10 will make that happen.
