FOOTBALL- Argentina star player Lionel Messi says his future in the team depends on how they do at the world Cup in Russia set to start on June 14.

In an interview with Spanish daily Sport, Messi said, “It will depend on how far we go, how we're going to finish" at the finals. We've just lost three finals in a row, which has led to us going through some difficult moments with the press.

"Notably with the Argentine press because we have differences of opinion over what it means to make these three finals."

Argentina had lost the 2014 World cup final to Germany. Then they lost to Chile in the Copa Del Rey final in 2015 and 2016.

Argentina launch their world Cup campaign against Iceland on Saturday.
