Messi the saviour

Argentina played another poor match against Iran. Granted, Iran are clearly not an easy team to play against. They showed that against Nigeria, standing solidly in the back, and against Argentina they proved to be dangerous in the counter-attack. Argentina's defense was exposed, and Sergio Romero again proved to be crucial. The goalkeeper is the best man for Argentina.
But in the end Lionel Messi appeared with another fantastic strike, knock-outing the brave Iranians and putting Argentina in the next round almost single-handedly.
Argentina will not be world champion. Messi cannot do it, and when they are up against more qualified opponents their weaknesses will be exposed even more. Argentina is a side of 10 good footballers and one super star, but can barely be qualified as a team.
