Exactly. That's why I laugh when some people actually uses that argument to downgrade Messi's career (that he never achieved something with Argentina). Argentina's national team was a disaster since 2008 untill last year, which were Messi's best years. Last year with a new coach which is not even a great coach, but he is at least acceptable (unlike the previous ones) Messi started playing a lot better (scored 14 goals in the last 14 matches with Argentina) and the team is doing a lot better.
He will have a golden chance in Brazil 2014 to win the World Cup.
