Messi has surpassed Maradona in club football. However he still has a lot to prove on the International stage. He can not be bracketed alongside Pele, Zidane and Maradona until he guides his country to the World Cup. Keep in mind that when playing for Barcelona he has two of the World's best midfielders in Xavi and Iniesta to feed him top quality balls all day long. He doesn't have the same luxury while wearing the Argentine shirt. So if he is to be among the best ever he needs to prove he can score goals anywhere and everywhere. The World Cup will be his acid test. But yes he is easily the best of his generation. Wahayy better than C. Ronaldo. Only player who even come close to him is Ronalidhinho (2002-2005), that is if you consider him to be of this generation.

Only in that culture can a drug addict, cheater, wife beater, egocentric, liposuctioned, child abandoning friend of brutal dictators can be considered a national hero. Many Bangladeshis, usually ignorant of such things, or don't think of anything "deeply" also love their ArZENtina. Then again, we also have Bangladeshis, not all of them Jafrullah Sharafat/Sahara Khatun khyat, who wave the Pakistani flag at cricket games and name their children Hitler and Laden.
Canigia...the master of cheating of all time in soccer. Second one...Diego's hand of God.
I support no more that once I used to. They use cheating more than their talents and technics in winning games.
Sadly the faggotry is quite infectious. Messi who grew up in Barcelona, needs to get Spanish citizenship before needlessly infecting himself further.
"O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant." (49:13)
Argentina and Abahoni... both starts with A; cause they are A Class material!

Argentina squad: Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (AZ Alkmaar), Mariano Andujar (Catania), Diego Pozo (Colon)
Defenders: Nicolas Burdisso (Inter Milan), Martin Demichelis (Bayern Munich), Walter Samuel (Inter Milan), Gabriel Heinze (Olympique Marseille), Nicolas Otamendi (Velez Sarsfield), Clemente Rodriguez (Estudiantes), Ariel Garce (Colon)
Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Liverpool), Juan Sebastian Veron (Estudiantes), Maximiliano Rodriguez (Liverpool), Mario Bolatti (Fiorentina), Angel Di Maria (Benfica), Jonas Gutierrez (Newcastle), Javier Pastore (Palermo)
Forwards: Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid), Diego Milito (Inter Milan), Martin Palermo (Boca Juniors), Carlos Tevez (Manchester City), Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid), Lionel Messi (Barcelona).
Defence is too weak. Goalkeeper may be weakest link. Midfield also seems hopeless with proven losers like Veron and Maxi Rodriguez. Javier Macherano wont be effective. There is no balanced backup for their fantastic attacks. The service of Riquelme needed who would probably can play Xavi's and Guti's business respectively for Messi and Higuaine.

They will go with three up front. Messi and Tevez are certain with Milito, Aguero and Higuain battling for the third spot. Higuain is the favourite though. If Mascherano slips up their defence will be murdered.
Star player: Lionel Messi
Players to watch: Carlos Tevez, Javier Mascherano, Sergio Aguero
