We could be in for a pleasant suprise .. doesnt really matter we shuld have messi playing for us by sat. maybe jk meant that he wasnt involved with his national team as Messi has an agreement to miss the friendlies v scotland and france. may aswell go and get his name on my shirt, its practically a done deal.
Messi is great, but come on. 3 good games does not put him in the same league as Wayne Gretzky, who scored more points in the 1985 â€“ 86 season than Crosby and Ovechkin have ever scored in a season, combined.
Last month, Argentina beat Brazil in the Olympic soccer tournament and went on to win the gold medal which may have helped prompt Brazilian president Lula da Silva to say last week that the Argentine players had an awesome fighting spirit and that Argentina's Lionel Messi is the best player in the world.
Pekerman, a low-key man who came up coaching successful Argentine youth teams at the world level, is trying to contain Messi's youthful energy.
Despite his youth, Messi is one of the most recognized players in Herzogenaurach, the medieval northern Bavarian town where Argentina has set up its training camp.
