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.
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.”
