Lionel Messi Still Hopes He Can Play In Argentina One Day

Argentina's Lionel Messi celebrates after scoring against Ecuador during their 2018 World Cup qualifier football match in Quito, on October 10, 2017. But we have players with talent and experience.

After Mauro Icardi's big season for Inter, the FC crew question his omission from Argentina's 23-man squad for the World Cup.

"The NFF wants another doctor to check the player and see if he will be ready for the World Cup".

It was earlier reported that Simon was dropped after failing to shake off the injury he sustained, but the Nigeria Football Federation chieftain asked for a second opinion on the winger to ascertain if he will be fit for the World Cup proper.

"La Albiceleste" recorded a 4-0 victory against Haiti as Lionel Messi bagged a hat-trick, taking his global tally to an impressive 64 goals.

Messi, who has now scored 64 worldwide goals, admits that they are not among the favourites, but he says logic goes out the window at the World Cup.

The South Americans have two final World Cup warm-up matches - against Saudi Arabia in Switzerland on Sunday and then against Sweden on 9 June in Gothenburg.

With no plans to leave Barcelona any time soon, though, that may well be a question that goes unanswered.

His first score of the night came on a penalty kick in the 18th minute. We don't want to send the message 'We're going to win the World Cup because we're the best.' because the reality is we aren't. We are not candidates but we are very good, training and improving day by day.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner's latest chance to overturn this situation comes at the imminent World Cup 2018.

Quoted by the BBC, he said: "We're not going as favourites but will give it our all". We have to win the first game [against Iceland], that's the most important thing because it will calm things down.

"We are going with a great squad that is becoming strong at the team and individual level".

Argentina play Israel before heading to Russian Federation and Peru face fellow finalists Sweden in Gothenburg.
