    Messi will be blamed...even though he shouldn't be.

    If Iceland wins tomorrow, Argentina will need an Icelandic loss to Croatia and win by at least four, possibly more depending on goals scored.

    Of course he should. He's not the only one but he deserves criticism.

    Urmatov is a good example of the benefit of from a small country as a referee. If he was from Europe he wouldn’t be anywhere near this World Cup.

    What I'm saying is he will be the only one blamed...i.e. Why can't Messi bring Argentina the World Cup?
    It's not just him.

    Given that he had to singlehandedly drag them across the finish line the last qualifying match so they could actually go...

    The tiny bit I know about Argentinian football is Messi is Mike Schmidt: they ride him mercilessly even though he has been nothing but great for them.

    It's not like it's Messi and a collection of bums. Aguero, DiMaria, Dybala, Higuain...they have all been good to great at clubs not named Barcelona.

    But a face like a butt, and I'm told the exact odor of one as well.

    And I mean, come on - Croatia and Real Madrid?

    In regard to Messi -

    I never thought it would be possible for me to feel so badly for someone so rich and successful.
    But the guy's history with his national team reads like a Greek tragedy.

    He's probably going to be a superstar but that man has more baggage than North West.

    You should go to Liverpool and sit at a bar the players go to. It's not like he's the only one.

    Yeah, I dislike the narrative that Messi is surrounded by bums.

    No...but good players doesn't always mean a good team.
    These guys may just not play well together...sure hasn't looked like it for 2+ years.
