‘Oasis’ couldn’t save Messi’s Argentina from WC defeat

London: The Argentina football team can blame Lionel Messi and rock-band Oasis for their dismal 4-0 loss in the World Cup quarter-final.

Messi tried to psych up his teammates for their big match by playing Oasis before they lost to Germany.essi had the Manchester band`s 1994 track `Rock And Roll Star` blasted out on the team coach stereo on Saturday.

"He was really keen to hype up the team with this rousing anthem. Unfortunately it didn`t produce the desired result," the Sun quoted a source as saying.

The South Americans were battered by Germany in South Africa.

Barcelona superstar Messi, 23, was introduced to Oasis`s music by team-mate and Man City ace Carlos Tevez.
