Alba: I don't understand the criticism of Messi


Barcelona star Lionel Messi has made it clear he does not want to retire from worldwide duty until he lifts the World Cup trophy with his national side, Argentina.

However, the squad's latest 0-3 defeat at the hands of Croatia, which puts Argentina on the verge of early elimination following their 1-1 tie against Iceland, hangs over the team captain.

"There is no leadership from the management or from those who are supposed to lead".

"We will give Lionel Messi to Lionel Messi", she further added. "Moreover, I want to enjoy some time with my family who I am not going to see until December". "The question I ask is if you have to choose between Messi and Ronaldo in a normal team, who would you choose?"

The Argentines are now preparing to play against the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a final group D game which will determine their continual stay at the world cup.

He said: "It means so much because for Argentina the World Cup is special - and for me too".

However Simeone said Argentina needed to rediscover their fighting spirit to have any chance of progressing.

People has been praising the Portuguese superstar as the best player in Russian Federation so far and looking at the situation, Ronaldo has been out rightly the best for Portugal because all the four goals they have scored so far has come from the forward.

The Atletico coach appears to be talking to his assistant Burgos, a former goalkeeper, when he criticises Argentina keeper Willy Caballero for gifting the opening goal in the game to Croatia winger Ante Rebic. Simeone said. "He did it against Spain, and against Italy". Messi led his country to three global major titles - twice in Copa America (2015 and 2016) and in 2014 FIFA World Cup - but ended as runners-up in all the three finals.
