Real Madrid winger Di Maria: Messi inspiring Argentina

Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria says Argentina is being inspired by Barcelona star Lionel Messi at the World Cup.

Di Maria admits the opposition's focus on Messi has opened up opportunities for his Argentina teammates during their run.

"Leo is the best in the world. What he does nobody else can do and luckily he's ours. He is going to be the World Cup's big goalscorer. He's at a tremendous moment, and that's very good but we all catch it off him", he enthused.

"We knew that our rivals were going to fall back and that we would get the space to play our game."
