Much has been said about Messi’s lack of production for the Argentinean national squad. It’s the age old argument where one uninformed analyst says that Leo should not be compared to the greats because he hasn’t won ‘the big one’. As a result, a handful of other uninformed analysts jump on the bandwagon and like Inception this stupid idea spreads like a virus. Also like Inception, it makes no sense. It was a dream within a dream within the Matrix within a nightmare. I lost track 10 minutes into the movie. According to this logic, though, the following athletes would have no place in sports history: Charles Barkley, Barry Sanders, Ted Williams, & Dan Marino. Get the point?
King Leo’s got 31 total goals for his country and 12 this season. You can see all 12 in the video above. As of right now, Argentina and Spain appear to be the teams to beat. Assuming Messi stays healthy, look for Argentina to win the 2014 World Cup. Yup, you heard it here first. Argentina will win the 2014 World Cup.
