Although he is considered among the best players in history, the 30-year-old has long lived in the shadow of Diego Maradona when it comes to the global stage. It's one of his biggest desires.

The beaten 2014 finalists go into Thursday's crucial Group D clash desperate for three points after a disappointing 1-1 draw with minnows Iceland in their first outing in Russian Federation.

As with all the Argentina coaches before him, Sampaoli has searched for the right partnership with Messi, who has often carried Argentina by himself and is always compared with Maradona, who brought Argentina its last World Cup title in 1986.

As Crespo said, Messi may deserve to win a World Cup, but unfortunately that doesn't factor into sports.

There's only room for one Ronaldo on this planet and he has managed to make a virtue of his lust for the limelight, as we saw so spectacularly in the wonderful 3-3 draw between Portugal and Spain.

"I respect him and Maradona was a great player, a 'crack, ' for me", he said.

"This must be understood first by all Argentines and then by his teammates".

And the 63-year-old believes that, although there is enough individual talent in the national set-up, their inability to play as a team has cost them greatly.

Despite the criticism and the pressure, Cuccittini told "Diario de Mariana" that Messi seems relaxed, calm, and confident.

"From here all his family are supporting him".

'I told him to do what he knows, to play just as if he was playing when he started out with Grandoli. "I love my four children, but I would give anything for this to be his World Cup".

Maradona said that the road to qualification is hard pointing Nigeria as a stubborn opponent that may stop them in their last qualification match.

The Latin Americans were no doubt dominant, but the Icelandic defence held firm, never giving their opponents room to play their usual game. We can not dwell on it, lamenting what happened.
