W/Cup Last Opportunity For Current Argentina Team - Messi

"Mascherano? I'm not going to tell you what he told me, but I'll understand if he leaves, he wants to play more", he told TyC Sports.

"If we do badly, the entire national team will have to disappear".

At one point it looked as though Messi may not be at the 2018 World Cup even if Argentina did qualify after he announced his global retirement in June 2016 after a second successive Copa America final defeat to Chile.

Argentina, who have not won a major global trophy since lifting the Copa America in 1993, were last week drawn in Group D for next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation, alongside Nigeria, Croatia and Iceland.

Lionel Messi has hinted that he may retire from global football if he and his Argentina team-mates have an unsuccessful 2018 World Cup.

"Bench role? It's hard for me not to play or to be subbed off, but I realised and understood that it was for the best".

They reached the final at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but suffered defeat to Germany.

Having been drawn with Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia in Group D in next year's tournament, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor expressed worries about the threat posed by the Super Eagles to his country's chances of reaching the second round.

There is also an option for Messi to remain at Barca for another year past 2021 and the fees linked with the deal are jaw dropping.

"He is suffering for the national team, but he must be in it", Messi stated. "But right here I believe we should have won at least two of them".

"The bitterness we feel is because we know what's coming if things don't go well for us. But he must be in the squad".
