Messi will lead the Argentina national side at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation next summer with the Albiceleste looking to go one better than they did in 2014 when they lost in the final to Germany.
In an interview with TyC Sports, "La Pulga" said that African teams can be very risky if they have "their day".
The Argentine felt that bitterness has led to a certain kind of burden that is not easy to deal with and said: "If Argentina don't do well in this World Cup, we will all have to disappear from the national team".
Argentina, who reached the final in 2014, struggled during qualification for Russian Federation, going through three coaches before securing their place at the tournament thanks to a Messi hat-trick in a 3-1 win away to Ecuador in the final qualifier.
"But it is true that we have to improve if we want to be world champions".
MS Dhoni reunion possible in IPL 2018
Dhoni has been associated with the CSK since the introduction of the team in 2018 and led them to two IPL titles in 2010 and 2011. In case of two retentions, the first player would be valued at Rs 12.5 crore and the second Rs 8.5 crore.
He subsequently reversed his decision and will be the linchpin of a talented Argentina side as they aim to win the World Cup next year. "Right now there are better teams than us, like Brazil, Germany, France and Spain".
"They have very good players, it was clear in the second half (in Krasnodar); but they also allow you to play, they leave gaps and many spaces are generated".
"It's nice to see how different they are from each other".
Furthermore, Manchester City, according to our source, were also willing to offer 30-year-old Messi a £88 million signing-on bonus. The criticism went beyond normal and went beyond football.
People get exhausted and want to see new faces and new things in the National Team. "We don't feel that way".
