Rakitic, who will be key player for his country in the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation said that Messi would have won 50 grand slams playing tennis.

Jorge Sampaoli's team is preparing for the FIFA World Cup 2018 at FC Barcelona's training facilities. They share the dressing room in club football but will represent Croatia and Argentina respectively at the mega event in Russian Federation.

Croatia will play against Argentina on June 21 where Barcelona teammates Ivan Rakitic and Lionel Messi will go head to head in a battle for their country.

"When you have the best player in the world you are the favourite, even though he says that's not true".

The Argentina football team took part in a second training session at their pre-World Cup camp in Barcelona on Saturday. When asked about the best goalkeeper he has played against, Messi thought over it a little and said, "The best goalkeeper?" At this FIFA World Cup 2018, all of Argentina's hopes to win the third title would be pinned on this Argentine striker.

Speaking to Croatian newspaper Vecernji list, Rakitic heaped praises on Messi and said that just his presence in the team makes Argentina one of the favourites for the trophy and mentioned that he did wished the Argentinian good luck for Russian Federation.

"In a World Cup, logic is nearly never given".

"I think we have a really good team - and if you see the group we can make it into the next round", Ebuehi told Goal. "But you don't play football by yourself, it is not an individual sport", said Rakitic. A lot has been said about Messi by a lot of people across the globe. "Quite a few squads are better,". As important as he is to his club FCBarcelona, with whom he won the Spanish League and the Copa Del Rey in 2017-18 season, he is way more important to his country.

The likes of Brazil, Germany, Spain and France are considered the favourites to challenge for the World Cup crown in Russian Federation next month, with La Albiceleste ranked fifth amongst the bookies, according to Sports Mole.

"The other day I was talking to a friend and he said to me: "Look, if you had stayed with Spain, you would be world champion", Messi said. "Obviously, it never crossed my mind at any time".
