If he delivers half of these performence for Argentina in world cup they will surely win the trophy.
There is a difference between the quality of other Barca players and Argentina. Xavi and Iniesta are two of the main reasons for Messis success. Also, he doesnt need to bother about defense in Barca as they have a strong back and also a defensive mid.
In Argentina, their back is weak. Their Defensive mids (Mascherano and Cambiasso) are good though. So in Argentina, Messi will be forced to run back more often also he will have much more responsibilities than he has in Barca. This will surely affect his performance.
