Australia defender Degenek on World Cup mission to stop Messi

DOHA: Australia will put their bodies on the line to stop Lionel Messi and spring a surprise against Argentina in the World Cup last 16, tough-tackling Milos Degenek warned on Thursday. The defender, who made his World Cup debut in Australia’s 1-0 group win over Denmark on Wednesday, said Messi is his hero but all sentiments will be thrown aside when they meet on Saturday. “You know I have always loved Messi, I think he is the greatest to have played the game,” said the 28-year-old.
