Poland and Argentina will star one of the partidazos of the phase of groups of the World-wide of Qatar the next 30 November and Robert Lewandowski expects with anxieties the crash in front of Leo Messi. In an interview with the newspaper 'MARK', the '9' of the FC Barcelona recognised that the 'crack' Argentinian keeps on being the best of the world in his position and took advantage of to speak on the possible return of 'The Flea' to the Barça.

"I think that Argentina, with Messi, is one of the favourites to win the World-wide. They have not lost in 30 parties; they play well and it sees that they are a very good team. Have a plan, that are following like group", commented the forward. Besides, it took advantage of to praise to the '10', the one who has had a big beginning of season with Paris Saint-Germain and arrives in an excellent moment to the that, probably, will be his last tournament to level of selection.

"Messi is absolutely brilliant with the incredible passes that gives to the forwards. If you think in Leo, see that has a brilliant connection with the attackers. It knows how put the balloon in the area, between lines... It is the best of the world in this. I do not know what will happen in the future, but for a forward would be a dream play with Lionel Messi, definitely", expressed Lewandowski. Clearly, the '9' would not have problem in yielding his leadership to the rosarino.

Robert has assumed the offensive weight of the Barça from his arrival, registering an average goleador to the that the culés were accustomed when Leo was the indisputable leader of the team. The 18 goals and 4 assistances in 19 parties (1,510 minutes) show that the Pole keeps on being one of the best forwards of the world, which confirms the Boot of Gold that received this week.

Lewandowski Recognises the legacy of Messi

On the other hand, the '9' showed his usual humility when recognising the impact of the Argentinian star in the world-wide football in this century. "If it analyses the football of the last 10/15 years, the two main figures have been Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and, at the end, if it thinks in who deserves to win this World-wide, always appear these two names. They are legends, but, on the other hand, this is football and never can say what goes to happen because it is a dramatic and unpredictable game", argued 'Lewy'.

Further of his rivalry with Messi (the Argentinian deprived him to win the Balloon of Gold the past year), Lewandowski has clear that his priority are the titles to level of club. "Always I try to do it the best possible... No only to mark goals, but also to help to my team. In the Barça, no only treats that it convert, but also of my movements in thefield . The style of the Barcelona is different and I knew that, when I arrived here, had to adapt me and show that it was able to do something more than adding goals", puntualizó the player of 34 years.
