Messi wants Higuain for World Cup

Lionel Messi says that striker Gonzalo Higuain should be picked for Argentina's World Cup squad. Higuain lost his place to Inter Milan's Icardi and Boca Juniors' Benedetto for Argentina's final matches in the South American World Cup qualifiers under coach Jorge Sampaoli. In an interview with local channel on Wednesday, Messi describes Higuain as "a fundamental player, he needs to be there."
