Lionel Messi rejected HUGE £850000-a-week Man City offer to stay at Barcelona - report
"I think if we do badly in this World Cup, we all have to disappear from the National Team".
Messi along with his Argentine teammates have failed to end La Albiceleste's drought, losing in two successive Copa America finals - in 2015 and 2016, and also finishing runners to Germany at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
"We went through a tough spell".
"People want results and if they do " t get them, they want to see fresh blood.
Last Friday, Argentina, Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia were drawn together in World Cup Group D. "But it's true that we must improve if we want to be world champions". We are the first ones to want to win with the national team.
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. "I've said many times that my dream is to play at Newell's, but I don't know what will happen".
"I'd have to watch them again to see what we didn't get right in order not to win them".
"As far as I am concerned, Higuain is one of the best centre-forwards in the world".
"The critics make him suffer, we have spoken about it many times".
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.
The Argentina admits "sometimes not playing is for the best". We spoke about it through messages, it was a good thing that he had this period of absence.
Higuain has scored nine goals and bagged three assists in 13 Serie A starts for Juventus who are in third place in the table, two points behind leaders Inter Milan.
