"In Argentina they know that Maradona is light years away from the best Argentine player in history which, for me, is Lionel Messi", he said. "[Angel] Di Maria did not get past his opponent once, the midfielders did not support him".

The diminutive Argentine captain known as "La Pulga" (The Flea), has won every club accolade imaginable with Barcelona, but has agonizingly missed out on worldwide trophies both at the World Cup and Copa America.

"They are different. Their contexts are different", he said, urging fans to look at the overall record of Messi, who is Argentina's all-time stop scorer.

"I would give everything for this to be his World Cup".

Paulo Dybala believes he can play alongside "the best player in the world" Lionel Messi for Argentina. Fortunately people love him and transmit that to him and he values that a lot.

"I still think we can improve in all aspects".


He even briefly left the national team altogether in 2016 after failing on a penalty kick in the Copa America Final against Chile.

"I see him much more relaxed, calmer and with more confidence", Cuccittini said.

But today, El Diego gave his heir to the throne the seal of approval from his box ahead of the game - imitating Messi's legendary El Clasico celebration against Barcelona after he scored his 500th career goal. Messi, as a vote, deserves 5.

A social user uploaded a photo of Messi being held down by the Iceland players, while another user opted to use a cartoon of Messi playing better for his Nou Camp outfit than Argentina. We have an entire squad here and we need to bind ourselves together through good and bad. They would have opened a little more and we could have found more spaces.

"We have the bitterness of not being able to take the three points that we deserved".

Kempes went on to express his disappointment over La Albiceleste's 1-1 draw against debutants Iceland in their opening group fixture and believes that side can not rely exclusively on the exploits of Messi.
