Manager of the Argentine national football team Jorge Sampaoli said it was “convenient” for supporters hold Lionel Messi responsible for everything, at a pre-match press conference in Nizhny Novgorod on Wednesday. «When [Lionel Messi] scores, we are all part of that goal and when we don't win, we hold him responsible. It is very convenient,» he told journalists before their crucial Group D tie... Еще against Croatia on Thursday. Sampaoli expressed his frustration at comparisons between Messi and Diego Maradona. «Every Argentine has an concept of Messi or every Argentine has an concept of Maradona. Both of those are valid,» said Sampaoli. Argentina will be looking to make up for lost points having drawn with Iceland 1-1 following a Lionel Messi penalty miss. Croatia come into the game on the back of a 2-0 victory over Nigeria which leaves them top of the group.
