Lionel Messi shows World Cup strain against Croatia

New, comments

Lionel Messi probably feels like he has the world on his shoulders as he bids to win the World Cup for Argentina.

It certainly looked that way anyway as the Barcelona star lined up with his team ahead of Thursday’s clash against Croatia

Argentina kicked off their World Cup campaign with a draw against Iceland with Messi missing a penalty meaning they really can’t afford to lose to Croatia.

Let’s hope Messi can turn on the style and ease some of the enormous pressure he’s under.
