The big star of the Barça and also captain of the selection of Argentina, Leo Messi, has ensured that, in spite of that the albiceleste has recovered the credit of the fans of his country when having arrived to the final of the World-wide 2014, is not favourite for the Glass America

In an interview published by the Association of the Argentinian Football (AFA), Leo Messi has ensured that the selection of Argentina trained by Gerardo Martino feels "strong" of face to the achievement of the Glass America 2015 the next month of June. "We arrive in a moment special of our careers: we come of a World-wide in which it was missing us very little to arrive to the glory and this pushes us and does that we can feel us strong for what comes", has signalled.

Messi, however, has puntualizado that "for nothing" it feels that the albiceleste was the big favourite. "There is big selections in this Glass and all have a lot of probabilities to win it. I bend me by which always are here, like Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay and, of course, Argentina. The same it is necessary to respect to the others also".

The "10", that is to nine goals to reach to Batistuta at most goleador historical of Argentina, thinks that "the people has dumped a lot with this selection, little by little was growing the like and the support. I suppose that it never had given him the credit that deserved and when we arrive to the final of the World-wide were all with us".

And still it sees with strengths to participate in the World-wide of Russia 2018 and win it to remove the espinita of the stray final against Germany. "For any footballer the maximum is to arrive to the selection and can win something... If it was the World-wide, would be the maximum. In this there is not revancha, only win that this selection was remembered and that we can leave very stopped to our country, such as they have done it other Argentinian teams".

And in spite of the big quantity of forwards of big level that has Argentinian in his rows, Messi is not sure that the one of the albiceleste was the best forward of the world with Tévez, Agüero, Higuaín, Lavezzi and Gave María like mates. "It would not dare me to say that it is the best attack but we are a big team that is enough very swung in all his lines".
