W/Cup Last Opportunity For Current Argentina Team - Messi

Lionel Messi has defended Gonzalo Higuain, claiming the Juventus striker is one of the best in the world and deserves to be in the Argentina squad.

"Because we have been in the national team for many year, we have played several Copa America, previous World Cup".

Higuain was left out of Jorge Sampaoli's squad for Argentina's final two World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador in October.

Lionel Messi has hinted that he may retire from global football if he and his Argentina team-mates have an unsuccessful 2018 World Cup.

Messi along with his Argentine teammates have failed to end La Albiceleste's drought, losing in two successive Copa America finals - in 2015 and 2016, and also finishing runners to Germany at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The 33-year-old, whose contract runs out in the summer of 2019, is believed to be considering his options and there will be no shortage of clubs eager to acquire his services.

In an interview with local channel TyC Sports, broadcast on Wednesday, Messi describes Higuain as "a fundamental player, he needs to be there".

"Of course, it is tough being a sub, but I have come to understand it is for the best".

Messi also reaffirmed hopes of closing his career with Newell's Old Boys.

"It's nice to see how different they are from each other".

They moved early, as Messi would have been able to speak to City in the New Year if he had not signed a new deal.

"The bitterness we feel is because we know what's coming if things don't go well for us".

People get exhausted and want to see new faces and new things in the National Team.
