We deserved to win them.

Messi retired from worldwide football after Argentina's penalties defeat to Chile in the Copa America Centenario Final previous year, before going back on his word.

"We went through a tough spell".

Lionel Messi has admitted that next year's World Cup in Russian Federation is likely to be his last chance to win a major global tournament for Argentina.

Having been drawn with Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia in Group D in next year's tournament, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor expressed worries about the threat posed by the Super Eagles to his country's chances of reaching the second round.

"We were worthy of winning them because, without having played well, we had the clearest [chances] - both in the World Cup and the Copas America". I think that we have time to improve in these games and before the World Cup. when we'll have a month to put everything in order before the start.

Cummings did not name the whistleblower in the letter , but offered to have Gowdy speak with the person directly. With the clearance of Mueller's office, Cummings writes that he's now making the whistleblower's story public.


"Brazil are very good, Spain have great players, Germany is strong, France have a good team - today they are all at a higher level than us".

"I would have to review them to see what we did wrong so we don't repeat them. But right here I believe we should have won at least two of them". He said that media criticism has created a culture of fear within the squad. "The bitterness we feel is because we know what's coming if things don't go well for us".

"People are waiting for this group to leave because it has not won for a long time and those who criticise get exhausted of always seeing the same faces. We don't feel that way".

"We have crossed paths several times, but have never talked to each other".

"Mascherano? I'm not going to tell you what he told me, but I'll understand if he leaves, he wants to play more".
