Argentina’s Messi relishing World Cup

Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi has said that his side cannot wait for the World Cup to start after they defeated Slovenia in their final warm-up match, reports Goal.com.

The four-time Ballon D’Or winner came on as a second half substitute and scored as his side won 2-0 on Saturday. They are now among the big favourites to become world champions for a third time, due to the attacking quality they possess as well as being suited to the humid conditions.


Argentina have been drawn in Group F alongside Bosnia & Herzegovina, Iran and perennial World Cup group stage opponents Nigeria, and Messi admits that he is relishing the start of the tournament. "I wanted to leave the bench and get on," he said after the game against Slovenia.


"We are a very strong group, which is what we were looking for when Alejandro came in. We've built trust. I can see we're all excited. Now the hour of truth begins. We're going to Brazil with a lot of excitement. We're excited by the players we have, but we have to go bit by bit."
