'Lionel Messi Can’t Win FIFA World Cup Alone!'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Apr 14, 2018 03:00 PM @KurtLaduma

There is a great debate that FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi needs to win the FIFA World Cup to be considered on the same level as Diego Maradona. An important figure has now claimed he cannot do it alone.

Did Messi & Pique Clash After UCL Exit?

Many supporters and pundits alike have claimed that if the 30-year-old is to be regarded as great as the likes of Maradona, or even as the greatest player in history, he needs to win the biggest trophy in football – the World Cup.

Argentine Football Association chief Claudio Tapia believes despite the 30-year-old being arguably one of the world’s best players, he will not be able to lift the trophy all by himself.

"Football has evened itself out," Tapia told La Nacion.

"We have the best player in the world but we have to help him, he cannot to do it alone.

"He's very mature and to have him is a privilege. He's number one, he has the ambition and the need to win this World Cup."

Messi & Suarez Blamed For Barca's Shock UCL Exit

Argentina were drawn against Croatia, Iceland and Nigeria in Group D at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Pele and Maradona did it alone. Messi Can do it but if he fails then he won't be compared to the likes of Pele and Maradon including CR7 aswell although much better for him since he won the euro with the national team

Messi has a strong enough squad to win the world cup. The coach must select a properly balanced team to allow him to do what he does best. Kun and Hinguain should be able to help him. But Messi that is 100% fit can do it all alone.

But that's what we've been saying all along that even in barca he doesn't do it alone. Not as much as cr7 influences big matches in Madrid and Portugal games..

I don't remember any player running around the field alone against 11 players,so as u claim he is the best he must produce that magic to help his team achieve that..but how since he disappears in important Matches?
