Barcelona star Lionel Messi believes that Argentina are perfectly poised ahead of this year’s World Cup in Brazil.
The superstar revealed that he will be back to full fitness after just recently returning to action after being forced to sit out for two months with a hamstring problem and that the Argentina national team should be confident going into the World Cup because the players have ‘grown together’.
"To be honest, I think the World Cup comes in a good moment for us as a national team and as a group because we have grown together," he said.
"I think it is a spectacular group, and all of us have a good relationship.”
"I believe all of us are at the perfect age and almost everybody has already played a World Cup, so I think we are arriving in a good moment."
The Barca superstar then added that there would be no easy games at the World Cup and that a bit of luck was important to do well at the tournament.
"After the draw, everybody said the group was very easy and Argentina is already qualifying," he continued.
"In a World Cup you have to play for every single game, because there are not easy teams.”
"We hope to finish on the top of the group.”
"You need a bit of luck, but we hope that all of us will arrive in good physical and mental shape to do well.”
"I think it is going to be very special. All the World Cups are like that, but especially this one because we play in Brazil.”
"It is going to be full of Argentinians and we are going to have a lot of support, so I think it is going to be something beautiful."
