Oliver has yet to fill out a bio.
I did not throw out any stats. I am a Messi fan myself and watch all the games I possibly can, and I do believe he is one of the greatest already. If you read over the second to last paragraph you will see that.
This article is about Messi emulating his top form for Argentina, which has yet to do, to his full extent.
I also did not say he was MIA in the World Cup. Again you may want to reread. I acknowledged the fact that his presence alone made a difference in the squad along with many of his runs resulting in goals, whether he made the final pass or not.
We all know time is on Messi's side, but considering his form of late for Barcelona, it would be a great time for him to bring that form to an Argentina squad that needs it.
