Argentina lack of defensive options taking toll on Leo Messi – ESPN FC

Argentina lack of defensive options taking toll on Leo Messi – ESPN FC.

Eh. Yes, Lionel Messi is further away from goal with Argentina and has more to do but Argentina’s defense has been the best part of its team in recent competitions. A lack of creativity in midfield has been an issue but Pastore looked to be linking up well with his teammates in the Copa so he may be the answer. Still surprised Banega doesn’t get much a chance. Up front, Aguero’s injury issues have hampered the side and Higuain hasn’t been clinical. I still don’t think any Argentina manager has built the system around Messi with whatever pieces Argentina has and just keeps trying to replicate his Barcelona role etc.

Play Messi as the No. 10 for Argentina, that’s his future position anyways and build from there. There’s enough talent elsewhere that a 4-2-3-1 should be fine for the squad.
