Lionel Messi demands Argentina improvement ahead of 2018 World Cup

Lionel Messi demands Argentina improvement ahead of 2018 World Cup

"He is suffering for the national team, but he must be in it", he told TyC Sports.

Messi retired from worldwide football after Argentina's penalties defeat to Chile in the Copa America Centenario Final past year, before going back on his word.

"I never went over the previous finals. People want results and, if they don't get results, they want new faces".

Barcelona ace Leo Messi wants Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain in the Argentina World Cup squad.

"If we do badly, the entire national team will have to disappear".

But the 29-year-old has been in prolific form for Juventus this season, scoring nine goals in 14 Italian Serie A matches, and Messi believes his experience will be "vital" in Russian Federation.

"I would have to review them to see what we did wrong so we didn't them".

Higuain was a starter for Argentina in the 2014 Soccer World Cup final against Germany in Brazil and in the finals of the Copa America in 2015 and 2016. "However, they also allow you to play; they leave gaps and many spaces are generated".

"For me, he is one of the best number nines in the world".

In October, Maradona backed Higuain to force his way back into the team while Batistuta said the former Real Madrid striker had unfairly been made a scapegoat for Argentina's recent disappointments in major tournaments.

However, the 30-year-old has insisted he understands how important rest is as the constant game time take its toll on his body more now than in his younger days as a footballer.

Argentina and Nigeria will play at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Novgorod on 21 June.

"I believe that this period without the national team did him good". "The bitterness we feel is because we know what's coming if things don't go well for us".
