Simeone slams Argentina 'anarchy', takes jab at Messi

Simeone also allegedly said he was not surprised by Lionel Messi's disappointing two games considering he doesn't have the same level of players in the national team as he does with Barcelona.

Argentina and Messi must now beat Nigeria to stand a chance of qualifying, although they could still miss out should Iceland manage an unlikely victory over Croatia, and Petit - a World Cup victor with France in 1998 has slammed the Barcelona ace saying he's no match to Ronaldo in terms of leadership.

However, fast forward to Russian Federation and it's been the opposite story thus far - CR7 has notched four, including a stunning hat-trick against Spain, as the Euro 2016 winners picked up four points from two games.

Former Barca midfielder Emmanuel Petit, who won the World Cup with France, wants to see a better mentality from Messi.

"He is one of the big names in Russian Federation who has made a strong start to this World Cup, in terms of goals, with four so far". The scene worsened after Argentina in their next match lost the game 0-3 against Croatia.

Since that's "how you actually use your phone ", you won't have to turn that big screen in order to consume IGTV . However, brands are able to create their own channels just like any other person with an Instagram account.

Messi cut an isolated figure as Argentina fell to a humbling 3-0 defeat to Croatia in their Group D clash on Thursday, making a premature exit a distinct possibility for the two-time champions. He's no Ronaldo in that regard.

"He needs to wake up!"

"He did against Spain, he did it against Italy. and I told you that it's a pity that he was not scored upon so that they realise that if you screw up at the World Cup, it's a goal". On the cake, the bakers carved out a sculpture of Messi wearing a jersey of Barcelona, the football club he plays for. He's not running, he's walking. The whole team's body language was so poor, no confidence, no trust between each other. He's not concerned about the ball. "The way they looked, I can not see Argentina qualifying now", he continued.

"It would be a shame to see them qualify, because against Iceland they looked bad, with no inspiration, nothing at all". They've been bad when adhering to Jorge Sampaoli's tactics and bad when marginalizing them.

"Lionel Messi is the greatest thing we have in Argentina and we must take care of him", Macri said shortly after the player's bombshell announcement.
