I Want To Win Copa America 2019 For Messi - Aguero by ackim: 9:59am On Jun 21, 2019
Sergio Aguero admits to being “more anxious to be a champion for Lionel Messi than for me”, with Argentina preparing to go in search of the Copa America crown.

Expectations around the Albiceleste have been played down heading into a major continental tournament on Brazilian soil.

Lionel Scaloni’s side is on the back of a disappointing World Cup in 2018, considered to still be a work in progress.

They can, however, call upon the mercurial talents of Barcelona superstar Messi, and that gives them a chance every time they take to the field.

A five-time Ballon d’Or winner is still waiting on a first senior international title with his country, having previously suffered final heartache at three Copas and the 2014 World Cup.

Manchester City striker Aguero is desperate to bring that barren run to a close, telling Fox Sports Argentina: “I'm more anxious to be a champion for Messi than for me.

“Hopefully one day it happens.

“It's his dream and everyone's dream. I put myself in his place and I want to try to do my best for him to lift the Copa America.

“It's been a long time that he comes here and he suffers. I also suffer.


“We know what he can bring and the rest have to be mentally prepared not to fail.”

Messi has taken in 129 appearances for Argentina, recording 65 goals.

He has tasted U20 World Cup glory, back in 2005, and landed an Olympic gold medal in 2008, but is still waiting on an elusive title with a star-studded first team.

His next quest is due to get underway on June 15, when the Albiceleste take on Colombia.

Aguero is likely to line up alongside him, with the 31-year-old having enjoyed another productive domestic campaign in 2018-19 as he netted 32 times for City and helped them to a historic treble in England.


He has shown no sign of slowing down but admits that he doubted his participation at the Copa America at one stage when Scaloni opted to overlook him.

“When I wasn't being called up I had doubts if I would be there or not,” Aguero added.

“Leo called me in April to tell me I would be called.

“I was very happy, I don't know if it will be the last tournament. We want to win something with the national team.

“We know there's a lot of pressure on Argentina. The smallest mistake and you are eliminated because it's a short tournament.

“You cannot afford to have a bad match, I'll try to do the same as I do with City.”

After facing Colombia, Argentina will then take part in further Group B clashes with Paraguay and Qatar.

All these messi slander threads is uncalled for. We all know it's not today that aguero said this

So why bring this up today. So people can laugh at him or what.

Wether he wins or not he's still my favourite player

Interview was before the tournament but since then what have they achieved 2-0 loss to Colombia and a lucky 1-1 draw against Paraguay. Win it for Argentine ppl not an ewu that only performs when he plays in Camp Nou.

I do not see Argentina winning any trophy in the nearest future if they do not shift blames, expectations, and success away from this one man called Messi. He is just an individual in the team.

2014 World Cup:
Argentina 1-0 Belgium (Higuain),(QF)
Argentina 0-0 Netherlands (PEN 4-2),
(sF)
STATS:
Messi-4 goals,1 assist (0 goals in KO) Higuain-1 goal (QF)
Di Maria-1 goal (RO16)
In this World Cup,Messi tbh was good
but you can see who's the reason to
play further from group stage.
--------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------
2015 Copa America:
Argentina 1-0 Uruguay (Aguero),(GS)
Argentina 1-0 Jamaica (Higuain),(GS)
Argentina 0-0 Colombia (PEN 5-4),(QF)
Argentina 6-1 Paraguay (5 diff. goalscorers),(SF)
STATS:
Aguero-3 goals
Di Maria-2 goals,2 assists
Higuain-2 goals
Messi-1 goal,3 assists Messi carried the team huh?
---------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
2016 Copa America:
Argentina 2-1 Chile (Di Maria,Banega),(
Messi didn't play),(GS) Argentina 5-0 Panama (Messix3,+2
goals),(GS)
Argentina 3-0 Bolivia (Messi didnt
score,but assisted),(GS)
Argentina 4-1 Venezuela
(Higuainx2,Messi,Lamela),(QF) Argentina 4-0 USA (Higuainx2,Mess
i,Lavezzi),(SF)
STATS:
Messi-5 goals,4 assists
Higuain-4 goals,1 assist
Lavezzi,Lamela-2 goals+assist Aguero,Banega,Di Maria,Otamendi-1
goal+assist
Here,Messi was the best for Argentina
clearly but you can see how others
stepped up too.
--------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------
CONCLUSION:
If teammates didn't step up,Messi
wouldn't have reached those
finals.This holds true for Ronaldo
also.If teammates didn't step up,he too couldn't have reached the final and
won.No one says Ronaldo single-
handedly won it for Portugal too.
But we all know who the goat is!
Someone who delivers when it matters.
Not someone who makes others receive blame for his faults.
Coutinho is blamed for last season CL Knockout.
Higuain is blamed for world cup final defeat.
If they had won it, person no go hear word. Messi did dis, he did that. Lmao. Argue with a liverpool fan not me.

Aguero be sounding like a gay over Messi. The main problem of the Argentinian team is none other than Messi. Coaches and his team mates have pushed everything in front of him to succeed but no, he'd never do so because it isn't Barcelona.

They're almost out of the Copa American tourney. Qatar just needs to quash their dreams and that settles it.

Argentina will never win any trophy if messi is still part of that team, quote me anywhere,
CR7 was able to win trophy for Portugal just because no much star player In Portuguese team, almost all the player In Portuguese team are average players , unlike Argentina team whose comprises of world best players and none of this player are ready to work their ass out to win a trophy and someone else(Messi) we be apploud for the success.
