NEVER scored in a World Cup Knock out game.

Even Matthew Upson has done it.

So which would be more devastating, Argentina or Germany winning?

Messi saved argentina in game 1 vs Bosnia (great gol)

Messi saved argentina in game 2 vs iran (great clutch goal)

Messi saved argentina in game 3 vs nigeria (2 great goals)

Messi saved argentina in game 4 vs switzerland (clutch dribble and assist in goal)

Messi played a great solid game in game 5 vs belgium (nearly no mistakes)

Messi player a good game in game 6 vs Netherlands, 2 huge assists to Palacio and Maxi Rodriguez in O.T. and scored his penalty also... (he had 2 or 3 oponnents every single possesion)


Overall he is having a great World Cup (remember argentina is plauing 4.4.2 witout aguero and di maria...really a defensive style...and messi is alone in offense.

right now

romero-reserve for monaco
zaba-top 3 RB in the EPL but had an inconsistent season
garay-very good CB, probably the best in the Portuguese league
demichelis-not really the most trustworthy defender, was laughing stock for part of the season
rojo-young and inexperienced, plays CB for his club
masche-barely played DM in the last 4 years but obviously still a top player at that position
biglia-reserve for lazio
perez-another player from the portuguese league, not a game changer
higuain-never a great player but knows his job.. sometimes
lavezzi-good energy guy to have from the bench but not as a starter


they played their hearts out defensively so far, but this is what they are. one tournament wont change that

Wishful thinking. Most articles I've seen talk about how anti-Diego '86 his cup has been.

Messi' greatness shines brightest on a ridiculously stacked Barcelona team.
