There are various teams going in to the tournament with confidence, playing well and with good individuals, as is the case with Brazil, Germany, Spain, France and Belgium, although the latter is not mentioned as much," Messi told Sport, according to the Mirror.
 
"[Argentina] have good players and the experience of the last World Cup. It will be an even competition."
