'Furious' Maradona wants to meet Argentina players

Lionel Messi news: Argentina star is desperate and frustrated says Mascherano

"He wants to show the world a different image to the one we've shown in the first two games".

Despite Nigeria giving them a knockout stage lifeline with their 2-0 defeat of Iceland, Paddy Power ambassador Petit said that he is disappointed with Argentina so far.

It has been suggested that a number of Argentina players tried to have Sampaoli sacked after the Croatia game but have been unsuccessful, and one of the victims will be Kun Aguero, who looks poised to sit out their next game.

Cesc Fabregas has played down the contribution of Cristiano Ronaldo at the World Cup and said that Argentina's struggles are not all Lionel Messi's fault.

"I'm furious and very upset inside, because anyone who has worn that shirt can't see it being trampled like that by a Croatian team that isn't Germany, that isn't Brazil, that isn't Holland or Spain".

For all his heroics with Barcelona at club level, Messi is still often compared unfavourably in his homeland for his inability to recreate Maradona's success for the national team.

And on Sunday (June 24), the day he is celebrating his 31st birthday, Messi will be handed the prestigious World Cup trophy as per Sputnik News Agency.

Fabregas believes Messi struggles for his country because he doesn't have the same understanding or quality around him like he does at Barcelona.

"Leo looks fine to me, but by playing the game we played, that went against him".

The sculpture will also be put on display in Bronnitsy, a town located about 50 kilometres from Moscow that is Argentina's base during the month-long tournament. "He's a key player, but he's a human being who has his own frustrations. The team is bad, bad".

"Croatia are the best in that group, and we will do everything possible to not finish second", said the Bayern Munich midfielder.
