Signs bad for Messi’s last chance to emulate Maradona

Argentina 2

Lionel Messi will need the help of the Argentina squad and can not win the FIFA World Cup on his own like Diego Maradona, according to former striker Hernan Crespo.

The latter has also tasted worldwide success at Euro 2016 with Portugal, but the former is back chasing down a World Cup crown on Russian soil this summer after enduring a number of near misses with Argentina in the past.

He was part of the 2010 World Cup-winning team, and has won four domestic and four European titles with Real.

But speaking to reporters after Spain's 1-0 win over Iran on Wednesday, Ramos responded to the 1986 World Cup victor.

"Look, I love Messi, we all do, but it's just not working out for him internationally", said Guillermo Aguirre, strolling round Nizhny Novgorod as Argentine fans began to arrive for Thursday's game against Croatia. "He more than anyone would give everything for this to be his World Cup".

"We talked with Leo about his current affairs and not to happen what happened in the previous World Cup, which arrived extremely exhausted", reflected the Argentina boss. "We need to take advantage of that".

"His aim is to bring the Cup home, to win the World Cup", Cuccittini told El Trece in a quote translated by ESPN.

"There is a "Messi dependency" generated by Messi himself because of how incredible he is on the pitch, but we can not rest just on that".

"I see Leo well, just like the rest of my teammates, eager to hit back, to do things well in our next game and to work", Mercado said at a news conference in Moscow.

Celia was quick to deny allegations that Messi does not feel the same passion when he plays for Albiceleste.

Using the separation of children and parents "as a leverage point or a negotiating point.just doesn't feel right", he said. Trump has repeatedly said Democrats are to blame and cited a "horrible law" that separates families.

After all, Argentina's presence in this World Cup can be credited primarily to the great Messi, with a chaotic qualifying campaign that produced some starling statistics to highlight the influence of their iconic No.10.

Lionel Messi's Argentina career has been marked by heartache and disappointment.

He added that Messi won the Golden Ball as best player in Brazil and may have taken the World Cup trophy had Gonzalo Higuain finished better. We are aware what we are playing for.
