Sergio AGUERO: "MESSI dreams of being me!"

Speaking to Puma, Serigo AGUERO commented about Lionel MESSI, the World Cup and more. He jokingly stated that he doesn't dream about being like MESSI, it's the opposite! Here's what he had to say:

"Let's hope I can one day be the best player in the world. But hang on a minute, I don't dream about being like MESSI... because he dreams of being like me!"

"World Cups are always difficult, but of course I hope that Argentina will win. Of course I am confident that Argentina can win. Spain, Brazil and Germany are also pretty strong. They're all good teams, but games are there to be won. I don't believe Argentina have an easy group. At the World Cup there are no easy games."

"If I fail to score in the group stage, I can keep believing I will score in the knockout stage, because that's already happened to me."

"It happened in Beijing at the Olympic games. I was in the starting XI throughout the group stage and I didn't score. Then in the quarter-finals I didn't score either, but the coach believed in me and in the semi-finals I scored twice. And, on top of that, against Brazil!"

"So I know I will believe in myself because I have already experienced the exact situation."

"You have to stay calm and believe the goals will come. You might score loads of goals in the group stage and then none in the latter stages. Football is a strange game."

Pachorra diagrammed a tactical trial, with a starting lineup and one alternate . In the first, yet Angel Di Maria on Friday joins the group featured the same old faces : Romero at the bow ; Zabaleta , Garay, Fede Fernandez Rojo in defense ; Mascherano , Gago and Maxi Rodríguez in the middle; Messi , Higuain and Aguero up front.

On the sidewalk in front , always under the gaze Heed and continuous displays of Sabella , Andujar stood between the sticks ; Campagnaro , Demichelis, Otamendi and Basanta ago ; Enzo Pérez , Biglia , Banega and Sosa as flyers ; Ricky Alvarez and Palace as attackers .

Yes man... Clarified... Myself turned statue hearing that... Cant even bear 40 degree celcius... I m get confused on how men living at 10 n 20 degree celcius is gonna survive at 80 degree celcius... 25-35 degree celcius means moderate climate only, i dnt feel that will b such a huge test for europeans, bt 12 pm fixtures r jst cruel... Do fifa agree 12 pm fixtures at qatar WC...!!!???

@Pradi, @Kidult -

regarding the temperatures, I'm sure there's a bit of a typo. The temperatures mentioned in the article from Kidult is in Fahrenheit , and NOT in celcius! Just for reference, 89 Fahrenheit is about 31.5 deg C, 77 F is about 25 Deg C.

The hottest temperature ever recorded on earth is around 56.2 deg C in California way back! :-) If everyone's playing in 70-80 deg C areas- they'd turn into tandoor!

I want Germany to top their group. They can always lose later. May be against the French in quarter final or the Brazilians in the semifinal. Let them do whatever they want. But please, no Argentina Germany quarterfinal again. We need an easy route to the semifinal. Few of our key players are not in the best health, let's have an easy draw. Good for us.

Kidult- do have a time machine hidden in your closet or what?

Cause if you do, go back to 1990 and kick Ze Germans ass, then slap the referee. After that pause a selfie next Maradona lifting the world cup in Italy!

Roy:Nice points..Well I too have those feelings that the Germans can be upset but of course that will never come across people minds, I have an open mind though so I do think about these stuff..

Germany will play against Portugal at 12pm..In this game Portugal will have nothing to lose so they will sit back and play for a draw being that they will be under dogs, so it will be up to the Germans to come at Portugal in the blazing heat..I predict this game will end in a score tie, being that its the first game for both teams in the tournament they will be just about getting into shape..

Portugal 1 vs Germany 1

Ghana 2 vs USA 0

These results will blow the group wide open, I hope it happen..This will send a shock in group G.

Kidulthood: What I meant was that Chile's style of play could be affected by the climate (depending on where they play, I haven't checked). You mentioned the match against Colombia but in the end, they did run out of energy. I really like Chile and I want them to go far but the injuries they have won't help.

I was having a long conversation yesterday with a friend of mine where we did the brackets and everything. We had every South American team finishing first in their group. Our semi finals were Brazil against Germany (or Portugal, depending if Portugal finish first in their group) and us against Uruguay. We also had something like every South American team in the quarter finals.

We were talking about if there could be any major surprises and one idea (we were drinking at this point, so this could have played a part in our decisions) was Germany could potentially do what we did in 2002 and crash out. I know I just said we had Germany in the semi-finals but we were entertaining the thought that Germany could somehow not make it out of their group. A draw against Portugal in the opening match and a draw against Ghana could see them not make it out of the group. Considering the problems they are having (Germany is far from perfect), it is a possibility. Of course as I was talking to my friend we were on our 5th drink and we were able to convince each other it could happen.

I will have the last laugh on all you guys when these minnow teams like Ghana, Ecuador, Chile, Mexico progress through their group at this summer world cup..Look for Costa Rica to surprise too..I remember Argentina could barely defeat a U23 Costa Rican team at the 2011 Copa..My friends, keep on writing off the Americas teams and Ghana because I promise you I will have the last laugh here..I never predict any of these teams to win the world cup, so you people jokes are not funny btw..

I never forget the 2002 world cup, I had a bandwagonist friend who was supporting France because they won in 1998..He was saying before the France vs Senegal game that France was going to win by 4 - 6 goals over Senegal (a new comer at that time) then what happen? Senegal won 1 - 0..You guys will be in for a lot of surprises this summer..Just remember the world cup is not in eastern or western Europe!!!

Stifling Venues:

>Manaus-----88 Average Temp(12pm-5pm)-----oppressive conditions.

>Natal----- 84 Average Temp(12pm-5pm)-------Oppressive conditions.

>Fortaleza----84 Average Temp (12pm-5pm)------Oppressive conditions

>Recife--------84 Average temp (12pm-5pm)------Oppressive conditions.

>Salvador-----82 Average Temp(12pm-5pm)-------Very Humid conditions.

>Cuiaba--------88 Average Temp(12pm-5pm)---------Muggy conditions

Temperate Venues:

>Rio De Janeiro--------77 Average Temp(12pm-5pm)-----Muggy Conditions

>Belo Horizonte--------77 Average Temp (12pm-5pm)-----comfortable conditions

>Brasilia-------------77 Average Temp (12pm-5pm)-----Very comfortable conditions

>Sao Paulo-----------72 Average Temp (12pm-5pm)-------comfortable conditions

>Porto Allegre-------66 Average Temp (12pm-5pm)--------comfortable conditions

>Curitiba----------64 Average Temp (12pm-5pm)-------comfortable conditions


HANDICAPPING THE 12 VENUES

Asphyxiating:

Manaus: Hot, humid and distant from everywhere, no one wanted to play in Manaus.

Fortaleza: A 1.2-mile, no-shade, dehydrating walk to the stadium under unforgiving sun gives the average supporter a fair idea of how players will feel during the match.

Natal: Its design supposedly resembles the surrounding burning-hot dunes.

Recife: "Playing here at 4 p.m. was inhuman," said Spain's Sergio Busquets after a Confederations Cup match in June 2013.

Salvador: In a run-down neighbourhood, the bright stadium looks like a huge UFO. The replay of the 2010 World Cup final between Spain and the Netherlands will take place under 4 p.m.'s heat.

Cuiaba: Not humid but extremely hot, the Arena Pantanal has all the makings to become a white elephant once the World Cup is over.

Gentle:

Rio de Janeiro: Although its summers can make anyone sweat, Rio's winters are quite mild. The beautiful new Maracana is the perfect place for the final on July 13.

Belo Horizonte: The first stadium to be ready to host one of the semifinals, the new Mineirao (Big Miner) allows for a gentle breeze to refresh the pitch.

Brasilia: The Brazilian capital, which lacks decent football teams, has the nicest winter among all venues.

Sao Paulo: The opening match of the tournament between Brazil and Croatia is scheduled to take place here June 12, when the weather is typically gentle and dry.

Porto Alegre: Home to Internacional FC, the Beira-Rio stadium sits by the Guaiba river. A few mosquitoes should be its only annoyance.

Curitiba: The coldest of the 12 venues sits some 3,000 feet above sea level. Lucky Honduras will enjoy the extreme experience of going straight from Curitiba's chilly evenings to Manaus' extreme heat and humidity.

Note: Argentina will play all their games in the ''Gentle'' conditions..

I can see why Brazil is so confident in lifting the world cup, this isn't just about players status..Brazil are playing on their territory which they know like the back of their hands..The good thing for our players is that these surroundings are familiar territories for them, due to playing in World cup qualifying games over the years and Copa Libertadores club football on the South American continent, so our boys will adopt as well as the Brazilians..The European teams will be exhausted by the time they reach the knockout rounds and to make things even worse for them, the major European contenders are playing in tough group matches which will take a lot of energy out of them by the time the knockouts stage arrive..

Argentina will not go further than Brasilia on there way to the final which make it even perfect for our players conditions.

I was actually thinking, and my final prediction is Argentina-Honduras. I was thinking about Argentina-Singapore final, but later I forgot that Singapore did not even participate.

You guys are really funny :p

@kid there is no need to tell you the score line , but brazil is better then any team in their bracket side of the draw, they will be too much for any team in that side of the draw Germany included, we are the only team that can beat them and we are in the other side of the draw, chile won't stand a chance against brazil especially with their style, remember how we beat chile 4-0 it is the same

Roy come on man.''With their style of play in the heat, I don't know if they will have the energy?''

This was the same Chilean team that went to Colombia in the humid conditions and outplay Colombia in their own back yard, Chile ran from start to finish in that game even when they were a man down.Colombia could only tied Chile with some questionable pks...

Argentina will be base closer to there home border which will be all right for them climate wise, not cool but not that humid...Argentina will not play any games in the North of Brazil.

We don't play in the north, ever. Weather will not be much of a factor for us. The team will not have that excuse.

While I really like Chile, I can't see them progressing far. With their style of play in the heat, I don't know if they will have the energy. That and I think should they meet Brazil in the second round, it's over for them. But it depends on who they meet in the second round. The injuries to Vidal and Matias Fernandez don't help them.

Playing in the amazon where some matches will take place is not a joke. It can reach 35 degrees pitchside. This may sound extremely obvious but teams who play a possession style will greatly benefit. They can wear teams out with their passing and factor in the heat, it's even better for them.

The atmosphere and fan base will help Argentina, but weather wise, Argentina's climate isn't exactly like Brazil. Our players will feel the effects of the weather.

@guled ''the truth is brazil will be in the final , the question is how can we reach the final first and then beat them''

Just give me all the scorelines and teams Brazil beat along the way to reach the final? You seems to just assume Brazil will be at the final..There is no logical reason to back up such statement.

guled, that comment was directed to el principe, he knows what I'm talking about. Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Italy will all crash since they are European countries playing in Brazil. All S.American teams will reach the semi final except for Brazil which is replaced by Ghana (they look alike, don't they?).....Chile will be a massive destroyer to every team.
