'Messi will be missed like Federer, so we will appreciate him'

Lionel Messi should be appreciated by fans of all countries at the World Cup, as he will be missed like Roger Federer "and more" when he retires, says Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni.

Messi scored twice from the bench in Argentina's 3-0 win over Jamaica on Tuesday, his penultimate friendly before Qatar 2022.

This was Messi's long-awaited first major international honour, and this could be the 35-year-old's last chance to win a World Cup, having lost in the 2014 final.

Although the Paris Saint-Germain ace remains at the top of his game, scoring six goals in his last four games for club and country, Scaloni knows he can't go on forever.
