Former Argentina midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme believes that Lionel Messi‘s presence in the next clash against Brazil is essential.
The two rivals will face each other on November 11th in the World Cup Qualifiers. In an interview with the Spanish magazine “Mundo Deportivo”, Riquelme said: “We’ll go to Brazil to win this game. Argentina can do it especially that we have a player like Lionel Messi”.
He added: “I’ve already said it. Without Messi, Argentina is an ordinary team that could be humiliated against Brazil”.
