Lionel Messi Says Argentina 'Not Candidates' to Win World Cup 2018

  • Lionel Messi could be headed stateside for a friendly against the United States in October. More

Messi, 30, has been on the losing side in four finals with Argentina, including the World Cup final in 2014 against Germany in Brazil.

Beaten finalists four years ago in Brazil, Argentina struggled in the qualifiers, only securing their ticket with a win in their final match but they were far too strong for a Haiti side 103 places below them in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings.

"We have good players and we are getting stronger to fight as an equal with anyone".

Messi then turned provider, setting up substitute Sergio Aguero for the final goal with 21 minutes remaining. The diverse field raring to compete in Russian Federation can help make up for unwanted neutrality with a sea of high expectations (looking at you, Brazil) and underdog tales (let's go, Iceland!).

"Argentina is the best in the group going by name, and for us the most important thing is not to lose the opening game vs Croatia".

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic is the team's primary goal scoring threat and will have a key role to play if Croatia are to advance beyond the group stage for the first time since finishing third at the 1998 World Cup.

"We're not going as favourites because we had a complicated time in the qualifiers, but we are training well and we will give it our all".

We go to Russian Federation with a great team which is getting stronger on a collective and an individual level.

The Barcelona forward fired a penalty into the back of the net to open the scoring after 17 minutes, before taking his second 12 minutes into the second half. "This is a lovely opportunity and we're going to give it our all".

However, he says he would be willing to forgo another title with the Catalan club if it meant he could finally get his hands on the World Cup trophy.

"Peru is ready to face any team in the world", manager Ricardo Gareca told reporters.

Sure, Argentina's squad isn't as strong as other nations. "This team is prepared to resolve problems that come our way".

"I always said I wanted to play in Argentine football one day, I don't know if it will happen but I have it in my mind".
