Argentina Boss: The Team Needs To Be At Messi's Level

Argentina Boss: The Team Needs To Be At Lionel Messi's Level

By Kurt Buckerfield - Oct 10, 2017 10:01 AM @KurtLaduma

Argentina manager Jorge Sampaoli has called for his team to all be on Lionel Messi’s level, ahead of their final 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Wednesday morning. 

Barca Star Denies Criticising Messi

The Albiceleste need all three points on Wednesday against Ecuador in their final qualifier, where they will learn their fate about whether or not they will be going to the World Cup in Russia.

The side have struggled to gel in recent games, and Sampaoli, who has only been in charge of the Albiceleste for three games, has insisted the rest of the players need to be on the same page as Messi in their final match.

"In these three games, I led an incredible Messi — committed, pressing," he said, according FourFourTwo.

"If we are at Messi's level, the match will go very well."

City Ready To Make R6.4bn Messi Move?

Argentina are currently sixth on the South American qualifying standings, as it is only the top four who go through automatically, while fifth spot goes to an intercontinental qualifier.

Do you think Argentina will win against Ecuador on Wednesday morning? Let us know in the comments section below.

Argentina will qualify....nd as for messi plz leave him alone....y don't u criticise the whole team!?!....messi creates they don't score nd he tries to score but he realises it's difficult then he tries a different tactic he makes opportunities that his teammates will face the keeper one on one but still they fail to convert....so tel me who's to blame there!?!....

@SKWAY maybe I'm being unfair on him maybe not,he's been blowing hot and cold,most of them are sitting on their laurels whilst poor Messi is busy trying to pull the strings,I mean where are the likes of Lavezzi? Argentina has all the talent but they seem to be jealous of the hype around Messi by that they are letting down their country,even this new kid on the block Dyabala has fallen into that trap of jealousy yet he hasn't achieved anything in football,that's why Leo wanted to quit Argentina

Thats why Argentina is struggling.How can a coach single out one player to be the only one committed and pressing.how will other players feel?like they are not doing anything.The whole team is struggling.How many set pieces has Messi himself failed to convert from the same area he scores wen in Barcelona.Argentina needs a coach.

Argentina needs a coach that doesn't care about messi but cares about the team and messi after. example luis Enrique former Barcelona Coach. The current Barcelona coach will not succeed at Barcelona , he cares too much messi

After all of this Sampaoli needs to restructure his squad and work with people who are willing to work with him,he is good at working with less known hard working players. He must drop these rotten potatoes

Argentina will qualify for Russia whether you hate Messi or not,these ego maniacs of Argentina have been trying to sabotage Messi not knowing they are failing their country,what is Aguero,Dyabala,Di Maria,Higuain doing? Are those not big stars?
