Lionel Messi could have led Argentina to a smashing victory against Germany. But unfortunately he messed up in the end.

Lionel Messi tried his best. But it turns out that the best was not good enough. Germany is known for its razor-sharp intelligence, pre-planned moves and killer talent. 

Watch Lionel Messi in action against Germany in Photo Gallery below.

The nation, famous for its cars and engineering skills, played out to the finish in the stadium in Maracana, Argentina and won in the end. 

There were several events which conspired and concurred to create such a result. In between there was a lot of negativity towards the presidents of FIFA and Brazil. 

One of the German players had to make do with a limp which was pretty embarrassing. But the really sad thing was that Messi could have ended up taking the place of Diego Maradona. 

But it was not to be. The kick allowed to Argentina in the end proved ineffectual against the German guard. It was a dismal failure and so the Germans emerged the victors. 

Messi was the man of the moment for a time being. But like he himself said so he was only one man and one man could only do so much. 

With all the hopes and aspirations of a nation pinned on him alone, obviously there was a lot of pressure that he had to bear. And this got to him in the end. It was apparent from the beginning that the Germans were as prepared as the ablest of boy scouts. 

They made their moves with precision and decisive exactness. The cutting edge skills of course paid off big time on the playing field. There was all the drama of scrapes and injuries too. 

Lionel Messi won the Golden Ball. But he was not happy at all. "I think he deserves it because he played an extraordinary World Cup," Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella said.

"He was a fundamental factor in the team so that we could make it all the way where we are today. … He deserved it, quite sincerely, yes."

But Messi was clearly dejected at the defeat. "A shame we can't offer the fans the [World Cup] trophy," Messi said. "We leave with our head up high, we have peace of mind. I'm proud to be Argentine."

Football is a full-contact game like basketball or karate. And with both sides poised for the final goal which was the world cup, there was a lot of healthy as well as unhealthy competition. 

The fact that Messi couldn’t make it only goes to prove that human efforts are limited. And especially when you have millions – nay billions – of eyes on you, the stress levels can soar and make the goal an unattainable one.
