Messi: My Generation Must 'Disappear' Should Argentina Fail To Win 2018 W/Cup

Ernesto Valverde recently said the Argentina global would not be sold in the January transfer window but captain Messi has hinted his compatriot could be on his way out of the club.

Argentina, who have not won a major worldwide trophy since lifting the Copa America in 1993, were last week drawn in Group D for next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation, alongside Nigeria, Croatia and Iceland.

LIONEL MESSI has dropped a huge hint he will retire from worldwide football if Argentina flop at the World Cup.

"We have to improve if we must aspire to be world champions", Messi, a five-time Ballon d'Or victor told TyC Sports.

They reached the final at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but suffered defeat to Germany.

Argentina endured a torrid qualifying campaign in South America's CONMEBOL group, only securing a World Cup place in the last match against Ecuador in October with a Messi-inspired 3-1 victory in Quito.

Many reports came in along communities along the Delaware River in the southern part of the state including Trenton and Camden. Some on Twitter report the natural disaster could be felt in parts of Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, too.

But Messi believes he should be recalled in time for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 30-year-old Barcelona number ten was not in action when the La Albiceleste and the Super Eagles played a Friendly game in November.

"I'd have to watch them again to see what we didn't get right in order not to win them".

Messi, however, believes they should have celebrated at least two victories.

Messi also thinks Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, should be recalled to the Argentina squad.

"It is very ugly to see the things that happen in Argentina, that you can go out on the street and people want to rob you and that they can kill you".
