Messi Can't Do It All For Argentina, Says Uruguay Coach

Oscar Tabarez does not believe failure to qualify for the World Cup would leave a stain on Lionel Messi's illustrious career as the Uruguay boss insisted the five-time Ballon d'Or winner cannot do it all for Argentina.
Messi and Argentina were runners-up at the 2014 World Cup but the South American giants are in real danger of missing out on next year's showpiece tournament in Russia.

A scoreless draw at home to Peru left Argentina sixth in the CONMEBOL standings and adrift of the inter-confederation qualifying position with one qualifier remaining against Ecuador on Tuesday.
"I don't see it as a stain and it shouldn't be like that," Tabárez said when asked if missing out on the World Cup would be a stain on Messi's career.

"He's a huge player but he can't do it all, this is a team sport."
