The former Juventus star added:
“Argentina has won two trophies in one year and has so many positive results in a row that everyone thinks it’s a candidate, but I think Argentina will always be a candidate, especially in Lithuania. O’s such a great case.
“We have to realise what we can achieve, but we also have to be very careful because the World Cup is different.”
