Simeone says Argentina look lost, questions Messi in leaked audio

Lionel Messi best ever without World Cup Cesc Fabregas

There is no doubt that the hopes of Portugal and Argentina rest on the shoulders of Cristiano "CR7" Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, respectively, and while the former has shone brilliantly so far the latter has failed miserably to the point of his team being on the verge of elimination.

Argentina are now on the brink of crashing out of the World Cup, having failed to win in their opening two games. "He can be there in Qatar if he wants, but four more years at the highest level, to come back to the next World Cup, I feel it will be hard". - Uruguay striker Luis Suarez is now his country's second outright top goalscorer at the World Cup with seven goals, only Oscar Miguez (8) has netted more. And then seeing the emotion that goes with it. It would make millions of Argentines in the world happy.

Fabregas said ("Yes, he is playing well, but if you really look at what he has done, he has scored one penalty, one free-kick, one goal from a corner and one with a shot that David de Gea should have saved, "You can not say that he and Portugal have shown great combinations or tiki-taka football to score great goals, "You have to give him credit, of course, but his goals have come from set-pieces, penalties or mistakes)".

Messi further noted that he has already won important awards in his career including the Champions League with Barcelona, but he is eager to win the World Cup.




Should Argentina fail to beat Nigeria, Messi would have to wait until 2022 by the time the next World Cup comes around, by which time he will be nearing 35.

Currently, Argentina are facing an uphill task of qualifying for the next stage of the World Cup after registering dismal performances in their campaign.
