Israel vs Argentina friendly: Sellout for Lionel Messi appearance in Jerusalem

Messi announces desire to play for Newell's Old Boys

Messi is preparing for the World Cup in Russian Federation with Argentina and says winning it with his country will be a unique experience.

"We have to be looking at the quality of our players - and I believe we are going to Russian Federation to do well - and not the quality of other countries' players, " Musa submitted.

For all the nationalistic pride that comes with cheering for your country at the World Cup, it can be tough to muster up the motivation when your favorite team doesn't have a seat at the table.

Whether for interesting tactics, freakish off-field storylines or pure star power, the World Cup is guaranteed to feature all.

Argentina have endured major tournament heartbreak since the 2014 World Cup, where they were beaten in the final of the competition by Germany.

Roseanne Barr Tweets Back at Co-Stars After They Condemn Her Racist Remark
But cancelling " Roseanne " is "like taking off "All in the Family" or "I Love Lucy" or Andy Griffith at their zenith", he said. Afterward Barr apologized, saying it was a joke that was misunderstood and laid the blame on the effects of Ambien .

The Barcelona star cooly slotted home a penalty to break the deadlock in the 17th minute before adding two more goals in eight second-half minutes at La Bombonera.

Messi, who has now scored 64 global goals, admits that they are not among the favourites, but he says logic goes out the window at the World Cup.

The Barcelona ace scoring goals isn't really surprising.

"Let no one have doubts that we are going to try everything, as people always ask us". We don't want to send the message 'We're going to win the World Cup because we're the best.' because the reality is we aren't. "We can not send the message that we are the best, because that's not true", he said.

"In a World Cup, logic is nearly never given". We have to aim to win the first game, which is the most important because it will provide us with peace of mind.

Roseanne Barr lashes out at TV son following cancellation
As for her tweet about Jarrett, Barr claimed in other deleted tweets that she believed the former Obama aide was "Jewish and Persian".

"More than the result we were able to say goodbye to our fans and show that we are going to Russian Federation with hope", Messi said.

"We are going with a great squad that is becoming strong at the team and individual level".

Argentina face debutants Iceland on June 16 in their first match of Group D, before taking Nigeria and Croatia for a place in the knockout stages and potentially Messi's last shot at World Cup glory. "This is a attractive opportunity and we're going to give it our all".

Argentina earlier scheduled preparatory friendly games against Haiti and Israel before they travel to Russian Federation.
