Rio de Janeiro: Lionel Messi's Argentina take on Belgium in the World Cup quarterfinals on Saturday again aiming to prove that they are a not a one man team.

Messi's side went out in the quarter finals at the 2006 and 2010 tournaments and the four time world player of the year is desperate to get the only big trophy missing from his resplendent cupboard.
