  • Lionel Messi rejected 'huge' deal from Premier League club before extending contract

Messi was named on the bench for their final two group games against Juventus and Sporting Lisbon. Messi told TyC Sports, on Wednesday.

"If we do badly at the World Cup, we 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.

The 30-year-old Barcelona number ten was not in action when the La Albiceleste and the Super Eagles played a Friendly game in November.

"But it is true that we have to improve if we want to be world champions".

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. "Right now there are better teams than us, like Brazil, Germany, France and Spain".

"Nigeria are like that, they have two faces".

"It was never going to happen".

The Argentina captain has played nearly every minute possible with his team when fit, and was nearly never benched during Luis Enrique's tenure at Camp Nou.

But eventually, they couldn't convince Messi to move from one table-topping team to another.

"It's nice to see how different they are from each other".

"Criticism went above and beyond what is normal and became personal", he said. We spoke about it through messages, it was a good thing that he had this period of absence. "We don't feel that way".
