    I'm sure Messi vehemently disagrees with this selfish opinion. He fought to go to Beijing and winning with Argentina would trump everything as he himself said winning anything with Barcelona. You realize he is Argentino through and through ?

    As for the team it is in transition. Scaloni is experimenting with players. And there are a good crop of young keepers and defenders emerging. The problem is they are still very raw and by the time they have matured Messi will have retired.Balerdi, Perez, Garay and Foyth for instance and between the sticks Roffo, Portau and Gimenez.

    Of the current keepers Musso and Benitez should be fighting for the spot. Rulli is so very inconsistent. The team certainly needs a midfield destroyer to complement Lo Celso and one other. Asascibar has still played well especially recently for Stuttgart and Nicolas Dominguez of Velez is an outstanding young player in the same mould. The future is very bright for the seleccion with the plans for a domestic based and European based team to have formal training sessions. South American teams suffer from their player diaspora without question. And the u20 and u17 are doing very well and should be strong contenders in Poland and Brazil (final qualification to be completed). They have plenty of huevos and character and plenty of skill.

    No disrespect to Nicaraguan Cules but let's face it, it is Nicaragua they are playing against, which ranks 129th in the world.

    I only saw the first 30 minutes and the team wasn't really gelling in that time. Only Messi and lo celso looked good. Hopefully aguero and the rest will step up when the tournament starts
