Argentina must play better, Messi admits

Argentina star Lionel Messi has admitted that his side must improve if they are to challenge for the World Cup, after they laboured to victory over Bosnia & Herzegovina on Monday evening, reports the Daily Mail.

An unfortunate third minute own goal from Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac gave Argentina the lead as he unwittingly deflected Messi’s free-kick past goalkeeper Asmir Begovic. Despite that, the South Americans failed to push on and were disappointing for the remainder of the first half.


The second period started in similar fashion, before Messi extended his side’s lead with a superb solo goal. That seemed to lift Argentina, but they were made to hold on in the closing stages after Vedad Ibisevic had pulled one back for the World Cup debutants.


And after the game, Messi said: 'It's important that we started off on the right foot with the three points, but we do have things we must improve.


'It's not easy with all the anxiety and the nerves, but the important thing is the result. We had a great second half. We had the ball much more, created several opportunities and that's what we have to continue to do.'
