World Cup 2018: I hope Messi recovers from whatever is wrong with him to face Nigeria – Veron

Former Inter Milan and Argentina star, Juan Sebastian Veron has expressed his bewilderment at Lionel Messi’s subdued form so far at the 2018 World Cup going on in Russia.

Messi-led Argentina must beat Nigeria in their last group game after a draw with Iceland and a defeat to Croatia to stand a chance of reaching round of 16.

Veron said he hopes Messi’s form would improve to help Argentina recover from a poor start to the World Cup.

He told RMC Sport, “I hope they go through to the second round. It’s not an easy situation.

“What has happened to Messi? Only he knows. I hope he can drag the team and the team can accompany him.

“One player alone can not solve the fate of a team.”
