Barcelona ace Messi: Argentina needs Higuain

Barcelona ace Messi: Argentina needs Higuain

But it's true that we have to improve if we aspire to be world champions.

Having been drawn with Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia in Group D in next year's tournament, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor expressed worries about the threat posed by the Super Eagles to his country's chances of reaching the second round.

"I've said many times that my dream is to play at Newell's but I don't know what will happen, and a part of that doubt is due to the way the country is at the moment".

Buenos Aires - Barcelona forward Lionel Messi says that striker Gonzalo Higuain should be picked for Argentina's 2018 Soccer World Cup squad.

"People are waiting for this group to leave because it has not won for a long time and those who criticise get exhausted of always seeing the same faces", Messi told TyC Sports.

Messi himself has been out of the side in recent weeks after starting Barcelona's last two Champions League matches on the bench.

The plane was flying near the Canadian border when it was diverted hundreds of miles south and eventually landed in Billings. Delta flight 253 was bound for Seattle from NY but had to divert to Billings, Montana after the toilets stopped working.

They reached the final at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but suffered defeat to Germany.

"I never went over the previous finals. I think we deserved to win two, at least".

"I'd have to watch them again to see what we didn't get right in order not to win them". "I have always said that I don't consider myself to be a striker, but I have been lucky enough to always score goals and win individual prizes", he said.

"As far as I am concerned, Higuain is one of the best centre-forwards in the world". We spoke about it through messages, it was a good thing that he had this period of absence.

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.
