You do realize i was on about the Copa America where he had all those assists for Aguero as well, Messi only had one assist at the world cup.

? When did I say Crouch was better than Messi or even comparable to Messi? I was merely pointing out his efficiency compared to a far superior player who on paper should be statiscally destroying Crouch.
Why have you brought up Rooney? My argument was not that "Crouch has a better strike rate, therefore Crouch >> Messi". Please read in context before making some smart-aleck comment.
As for the Higuain thing - BS, all you've done there is show that you don't watch Argentina play outside of the WC. Messi set up like 3 of Higuain's WC goals, but to suggest that he always assists Higuain is BS.
And to suggest that Messi is this selfless player who always looks for the pass is also complete crap, seeing as he took 30 shots at the WC (4th most in the tournament).
Did you see who had Most shots missed? Ronaldo tied with Gyan and Sneider. Messi could have had 3 had it not been for a performance of a lifetime from Vincent Enyema.

Messi had 2 assists at Copa America... Messi set up pretty much every one of Higuain's goals in the game vs. South Korea.

Anyway, that's besides the point.
Did you just make that stat up? Ronaldo had 9/21 shots on target. Gyan was 17/32, Sneijder was 11/27. If my maths is correct, Ronaldo missed 12, Gyan missed 15, Sneijder missed 16... How are any of them tied?
Messi was 15/30. Shots on target doesn't mean much because I'd rather a player go for top corner and miss than just poke it straight at the keeper for a shot-on-target.
The fact that Messi shot 30 times means he wasn't this benevolent, selfless guy who just wanted to create goals for others.

Ronaldo's right quad> Messi's right leg though.... FACT!
