Messi: I Would Swap My Ballon d'Ors For A Title With Argentina

Ahead of Argentina's clash with Iceland today, FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi says he would swap all of his Ballon d'Or titles for a trophy with the national team.

Messi has been to three Copa America finals and one World Cup final, losing on all four occasions.

The 30-year-old decided to retire after the loss in the 2016 Copa America final to Chile but reversed his decision a few months later.

"I already said that I would change the Ballons d'Or for a title with the national team," Messi said, according to FourFourTwo.

"And I'm not saying that they have no value, no, but the collective prizes will always be ahead of the individual. I have won a lot with Barcelona and my motivation has always been the same: to win again.

"I'll go after that in Russia. Getting a World Cup is the best for any player. It motivates me a lot to win the World Cup."

Pure empty words.....he knows clear that has, is and will never be possible. He's just playing with words to construct an excuse for mediocre. It is the firstbgame, I am still watching.

How on earth can a team perform well with only one friendly against Haiti. Your federation is letting you down, plus dybala, aguero, higuain and mascherano. Those players are cows for the national team

Messi cares less about individual brilliance. As long as they win titles as team he becomes happy
