We'll have to disappear if World Cup goes badly — Argentina captain Messi

We'll have to disappear if World Cup goes badly — Argentina captain Messi”

Messi, who has won eight LaLiga titles and four Champions Leagues with Barcelona, does not think about his failures with Argentina, though he feels they deserved to triumph at the last hurdle at least twice.

The 33-year-old's time at Barca could also be coming to an end, after a lack of appearances this season sparked talk of a possible move away from the Nou Camp.

Argentina were placed in Group D at last week's World Cup draw, alongside Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.

"We have to improve if we aspire to be world champions", said Messi.

By the time that contract expires, Messi will be 34 years old and potentially considering retirement.

"I never went back over the finals we lost". I want them to grow up in a calm place, being able to enjoy life with security.

"I believe that this period without the national team did him good".

"I'd have to watch them again to see what we didn't get right in order not to win them".

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

The report states that Manchester City offered a €100 million signing-on fee to try and lure him in the summer. The criticism went beyond normal and went beyond football.

People get tired and want to see new faces and new things in the National Team. "We don't feel that way". "It hurts a lot to have gone to three finals and be so criticised".

Jorge Sampaoli's side almost did not qualify for the tournament, but a Messi hat-trick in their final qualifier against Ecuador secured their spot in Russia.

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has said he and his Argentina teammates will "have to disappear" if they fail to take their last chance of winning the 2018 World Cup in Russia. "I've said many times that my dream is to play at Newell's, but I don't know what will happen".
