On favorite to win the World Cup,”Of course, England is going to be there, France, Brazil.. I think one of them are going to do it but I’m still sticking with Argentina.”
“There is still hope [for Argentina]. I mean the greatest player ever in my opinion, I still think he’s going to do it.”

“For a long time everything was perfect for us — all joy — but in difficult moments we need everyone’s support.”
“This group is ready to rise and bounce back, we have no questions over that in that regard of how we play the game. With all the responsibility — we know there’s a whole country behind us — but everyone on the pitch will break our backs until the last second we are on the pitch so we can reverse the opening match.”
