Messi's contribution to Argentina has generally been under rated throughout his career. Been anonymous this tournament though, looks like he can't be fucked which is odd.

The people of Argentina outside of his hometown have never really showed the love for him like Maradona gets, perhaps it has a lot to do with him leaving his homeland at a very young age

I don't see any reason to hate him. 

Why don't you Google his quotes on Rangers.

Can't believe Argentina were odds on to win this (seen them 10/11) considering who plays for both sides.

I get Argentina have Messi, Aguero, Higuian, Dybala and left a guy like Icardi at home but compared to Croatia they are average as fuck every where else.

Everyone of Croatia's starting 11 apart from Vida play in a top 5 European league. I couldn't tell you half the players in the Argentina starting 11.

Also though, Messi is the only one that's proper top rung, whereas Croatia have two in Modric and Rakitic.

Tbh Portugal have a team that plays a certain way that allows CR to strut his stuff, he only plays in the last third. Argentina expect Messi to do everything. 

Messi lover. He has done fuck all for tge Argies. Touched the ball 20 times in tge first half, Ronaldo probably touches it less but his impact is there to see. No excuses hes a wee tippy tappy dribbly wank.

You are a sad individual. 

Why can people not appreciate that we have two of footballs greatest playing at the same time?

Cause there is no room for the two best players. Ronaldo imo all day long, hes an all round machine take away Messis dribbling ability and what ya got?

'Messi lover', 'Messi fangirls'. 😆

People appear to reverse back through puberty when the subject is Messi.

:lol: 

I know folk compare the 2 and their impact on games etc, but I have never ever saw someone claim that Cristiano Ronaldo can pass a ball better than Lionel Messi.

And they two (with Brozovic) going up against an old Mascherano and Perez in midfield is a complete mis-match!

I don't know why I'm so surprised, given I watched this Argentina side stumble their way through qualification

No direction, no game plan, no strategy. Nobody makes space for Messi - the team is full of people who want want want the ball. Sampaoli thought he could get away with just putting a few quality players on the pitch and hoping they do something. Can't do that. 

The difference between Ronaldo/Portugal and Messi/Argentina is incredible. Portugal actually play to Ronaldo's strengths - everything rotates around him and, they're solid at the back so when he's having a rare off-day the defence rarely leaks goals. Argentina don't. They rely on Messi massively but don't do enough to support him. 

At Barcelona, every single footballer on the pitch knows they play FOR Messi basically. 

Although to be fair he has genuine world class players around him at Barcelona
