World Cup 2014: Gary Lineker wants Argentina's Messi to step up
BBC Sport's Gary Lineker says he expects better things from Lionel Messi if Argentina are to stand any chance of beating the "hugely impressive" German side in the 2014 World Cup final.
Messi failed to touch the ball inside keeper Jasper Cillessen's penalty area during 120 minutes of open play in Wednesday's semi-final penalty win against the Netherlands.
Despite tipping Argentina before the tournament, Lineker says he will be massively surprised if that is now the case come Sunday night in Rio de Janeiro.
