Spain star: ‘Argentina should thank God they have Messi’

Spain forward believes Argentina is a Messi-dependent team, and the 1-6 defeat when the striker was not present due to an injury is a good argument for it.
“You have to do an analysis in all aspects.

“The Argentines criticise Messi a lot, but you can tell that when Messi is not there, they are something else.

“A player like Messi should not be criticised. You should thank God that he’s there.

“Messi must always be treated well. Even if he plays a bad game with the national team, having him on the field makes a difference.”
