With Messi brilliant performance since the world cup started, stakes are high that they can go all the way.
  Messi reportedly said:
  "I am feeling positive pressure"
  "It is a great honour to be captain of Argentina.I want to pay back the trust given in me leading Argentina to the world cup.
  "To play a world cup final with the great atmosphere of the Maracana is something that every player dreams of, but first we have to make sure we get there".
  Argentina will be aware of the huge attacking options at the Netherlands' disposal, even though Robin Van Persie might not play due to stomach ache, there is still a man that can make a difference and that is Arjen Robben.
  Coach Sabella said:
  "He is a player who can throw you off balance in a one-on-one situation, so we have to be especially careful with that, have players close, that is to say as grouped as possible".
