Barcelona president hopes Lionel Messi’s Argentina can win 2018 World Cup

Mauricio Macri and Argentina team

Lionel Messi and his Argentine teammates were visited by president Mauricio Macri before they departed for their 2018 FIFA World Cup camp in Barcelona. They're the top two in the all time list among men.

Speaking to Croatian newspaper Vecernji list, Rakitic heaped praises on Messi and said that just his presence in the team makes Argentina one of the favourites for the trophy and mentioned that he did wished the Argentinian good luck for Russian Federation. If Messi had played tennis, he'd have won 50 Grand Slams!

"We played against Argentina before in a friendly game, which we won". "As with all other team-mates that went to the World Cup, I wished him (Messi) all the luck", he said.

As we move towards the 2018 FIFA World Cup, fans are busy piling unrealistic expectations on Barcelona FC legend Lionel Messi.

Supporters gave the Argentina national team a rousing send-off before the players left for the World Cup in Russian Federation. "Of course, when you have the best player in the world, you are favourites, although he says they are not", Rakitic was quoted as saying by the newspaper. "It doesn't matter who you play against, however, Messi didn't play against us in the friendly match". The most important thing is we can play as a team.

"I think we have a really good team - and if you see the group we can make it into the next round", Ebuehi told Goal. He has to forget about the critics, if he can win the World Cup or not. A lot has been said about Messi by a lot of people across the globe.

Messi has won multiple Champions League and Club World Cup titles with Barca.

Argentine Captain Diego Maradona kisses the World Cup Trophy after a 3-2 victory against West Germany on June 29, 1986. Messi moved to Barcelona at the age of 13 and would have been eligible to play for Spain. "But it wouldn't have been the same".
