Besides, if Argentina wanted to do good they would need somebody like Donavon in their team. They dont have that kind of quality for the finals =) World Cup: Has Landon Donovan outscored Rooney, Ronaldo, Messi, Ibrahimovic combined? | SIDELINE | MLSsoccer.com
...but, Donovan will most likely not start any game, I am guessing. He will likely be a 60th minute sub in a game or two.

Argentina is right now the likelest team to win the world cup IMO cuz they have a weak bracket(the don't play a true contender until semi's) which really sucks. I wish colombia and argentina could swap groups. They will win their group anyway, but they will have to play brazil in the quarter-finals

why? just stating facts


according to a recent survey, only 17% of argentinians think argentina will get to the finals. And nearly 40% think they will get out in the quarters just like in every world cup. 6% think they wont get out of the group. Most people here think Brasil will win world cup.

But im trying to be optimistic here, im hopeful with the great players we have and the AMAZING offensive power, best attack in the wc

you too hate them? why?

messi has to be like the nicest player ever, plus the talent. why wouldnt everyone want him to succeed in the biggest stage?

I know argentina has a lot of fans outside the country because of this (a lot of neutral people want to see Messi lift the cup)



GO MESSI

your right messi is really nice and humble. so is Angel di maria and I personally want them to play well but have the rest of the Argentine players play bad. so messi and Di Maria can score a bunch of goals but the rest of the team score own goals

Why would I want to see Messi win the World Cup because he is nice and talented? A lot of players are nice and talented?

I have my own World Cup priorities.

what about kun aguero? he is so nice and lovely

this has to be the nicest group of players we ve had in decades. With Tevez out, there are no queen bees, no fuss in the locker room. Just a group of young, humble, talented players

Because Messi is the best player of his generation and one of the legends of the sport?

Maybe this WC crowns him as the best ever

Cruyff never won a World Cup. Eusebio never won a World Cup. Van Basten never won a World Cup. Best never even played in a World Cup.

It happens.

Messi winning the World Cup does nothing for me at all.
