Messi announces desire to play for Newell's Old Boys

Asked if Argentina could win the World Cup, Messi swerved between hope and realism.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor then set up substitute and Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero with 21 minutes remaining at La Bombonera, where Haiti did not register a shot.

"My dream was to play for Newell's as a kid, going to the matches with my dad, my brothers, my friends. after that; circumstances in life took me elsewhere but I still have that in mind".

The Super Eagles have lost four matches in a row to Argentina in the World Cup tournament, but Musa who scored a brace as the Eagles went down 3-2 against the Argentine at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil was optimistic that the Eagles will take their pound of flesh in Russian Federation.

However, Messi has revealed he never considered rejecting the opportunity to represent the country of his birth, as he believes a World Cup victory with Argentina would be a "unique" moment for him.

Messi joined Newell's in his native Rosario back in Argentina aged just six years old and remained there for six years before moving to Barcelona in 2001.

The gulf in class was obvious in Buenos Aires, where 103 spots separated fifth-ranked Argentina and Haiti.

It is hard to look at the dominance and brilliance Argentina played with Tuesday and see it as anything but one of the World Cup favorites, especially given the competition it will face in Group D with Croatia, Iceland and Nigeria. We're training hard and we're improving every day.

He admitted that they are all hungry to win the World Cup and the presence of Messi in their team makes it even more of an incentive. When I try to go to a shopping mall or walk somewhere, I always go fast, so as not to stop. We go to Russian Federation with a great team which is getting stronger on a collective and an individual level.

Messi insists winning it with Argentina would be particularly special and says he doesn't regret not swapping allegiances to Spain, despite their win in 2010. "We are facing a handsome possibility and we are looking for that".
