Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni has no doubt that Lionel Messi is the greatest footballer of all-time after an exceptional World Cup semi-final effort.

Scaloni was again wowed by Messi in Tuesday’s 3-0 victory over Croatia, which sends Argentina to the World Cup final.

The forward became Argentina’s top World Cup scorer with his first-half penalty before assisting Julian Alvarez later in the match.

“Sometimes it can look like we only say that as Argentinians but I don’t have any doubt [he’s the best],” Scaloni told reporters after the match.

“Every time he plays it’s a huge source of motivation for his team-mates. There’s nothing left to say about Messi, it’s a privilege to have him.”

On the meaning of the semi-final victory, Scaloni added: “It’s difficult to put this in words. This is what I’ve always dreamed of as an Argentinian.

“It is emotional and our people support us in a way which is unforgettable. We are making history.”

Messi will lead his team into Sunday’s World Cup final against the winner of France vs Morocco.
