"Messi did nothing with Argentina without Xaviniesta and bla bla bla"

It is, of course, BS. Messi is the greatest.

Man Paraguay got their shit pushed in. Reminds me of that time Mexico actually sent a decent team and put a smack down on Paraguay in the third place game...
That match was for the quarter finals, they played Uruguay for the third place

Penalty win in quarters and a trashing in the semis. Teams like this usually win the tournament....

They deserved a big margin win in the quarters. Argentina is the best team of the tournament with difference.

They had one good game. Sorry but you're ignoring a rather shocking result:

Argentina 1-0 Jamaica.

Argentina is probably going to win the tournament since Chile is going to implode in the final. But Argentina has not been as convincing as they should have been. The tournament was there for them to take. Brazil was rubbish - you could see that coming from a mile away. The Argies should be winning every game by 3 or 4 goals - they're NOT.

Apparently Messi rejected the MVP award (fair enough) and it's been decided that no one else will get it (wat)

Well done Messi, Alexis or Bravo had to win it though ...

Regarding Messi, he's without doubt the most dominant club player of last 25 years with countless trophies and goals ... but it's hard to ignore his failure at national level as well as lack of goals ...

World Cup 2006: 1 goal, knockout round goals 0, QF
Copa America 2007: 2 goals, knockout round goals 2, Final
World Cup 2010: 0 goal, knockout round goals 0, QF
Copa America 2011: 0 goal, knockout round goals 0, QF
World Cup 2014: 4 goals, knockout round goals 0, Final
Copa America 2015: 1 goal, knockout round goals 0, Final

Well, he didn't play much in World Cup 2006, but his record is really poor based on his reputation.

I think Zidane, Ronaldo, Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the best players of the last 25 years. Zidane and Ronaldo had more success in International competitions, Messi and Cristiano had more success in club competions. You can argu Zidane and Ronaldo had better international colleagues compared to Messi and Cristiano, but same can be said about Messi and Cristiano's club level teammates.

Maybe this debate can be the next question of the week's question, international legacy vs. Club legacy. Messi club record is great, but so is Ronaldo's international resume:
2 World Cup, 1 runner up
2 Copa America, 1 runner up
1 Confederation Cup

Alexis? You love talking shit without knowledge. He played a shit Copa America, Vargas and Vidal were Chile best players.
