W/Cup Last Opportunity For Current Argentina Team - Messi

Lukaku scored with a neat finish to draw United level

Argentina, Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia were drawn into Group D in Friday's draw in Moscow.

"I think it's the last opportunity for this group".

"But it's true that we need to improve if we want to be world champions". We are the first ones to want to win with the national team.

The Argentine felt that bitterness has led to a certain kind of burden that is not easy to deal with and said: "If Argentina don't do well in this World Cup, we will all have to disappear from the national team". "It's much more hard for us to play at home than on the road".

But the 29-year-old has been in prolific form for Juventus this season, scoring nine goals in 14 Italian Serie A matches, and Messi believes his experience will be "vital" in Russian Federation.

"I never went over the previous finals".

"I would have to review them to see what we did wrong so we didn't them".

Messi himself has also been left out of the team in recent weeks.

"He is suffering for the national team, but he must be in it", Messi stated.

"As far as I am concerned, Higuain is one of the best centre-forwards in the world".

The Argentina admits "sometimes not playing is for the best".

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. I think this period off global duty was good for him, though, as he has been able to focus on training and improving his fitness levels. We spoke about it through messages, it was a good thing that he had this period of absence. "But he must be in the squad".

Higuain has nine goals and three assists in 13 Serie A starts for Juventus, who are in third place in the table in Italy, two points behind leaders Inter.
