Argentine football great Lionel Messi has received a piece of advice from former US President Barack Obama on how to win the World Cup.

According to the report, the former US president gave a rare interview on football when at the EXMA Conference in Bogota and offered an insight on one of the planet’s top talents.

“In Argentina, even though Messi is wonderful, they have problems winning the WC,” said Obama. “My advice to youngsters is that we have to recognise very few people achieve great things on their own,” he added.
