Hernan Crespo: 'Lionel Messi does not need to win World cup to be considered all time great
Argentina forward Lionel Messi does not need to win the World Cup to be considered an all-time great, says former striker Hernan Crespo.

Messi, 30, had a penalty saved in Argentina's 1-1 draw with Iceland in their opening game in Russia.

He has won 32 titles and five Ballons d'Or in 14 seasons at Barcelona, but has never lifted the World Cup.

"A lot of players are great in our memories without winning the World Cup," Crespo told BBC Sport.
