The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner also said the current La Albiceleste squad is identical to the one that lost in extra time to Germany in the 2014 World Cup final.

“At the WC, things always happen that you don’t imagine,” Messi, told. “At the 2014 World Cup we performed very well, which was an unforgettable experience. I enjoyed it a lot and where it became clear to me more than ever that the most important and important thing is to be a strong and united group.”

I feel many similarities between this group and the World Cup in 2014. It is a group that always, regardless of the match, plays with the same intensity and concentration, and I think that is very important. And we know we’re going to fight for it, but we (don’t) think we’re going to be champions from the start like the Argentinians think. he added.

Argentina play a friendly against the UAE on Wednesday in preparation for their FIFA World Cup opener against Saudi Arabia the following week. Argentina are in Group C with Mexico, Poland and Saudi Arabia and will begin the campaign against the latter.
