WATCH: Graham Hunter on Lionel Messi's pursuit of World Cup glory

Will a win on Sunday see Lionel Messi finally step out of Diego Maradona's shadow? Graham Hunter discusses.

The debate over who the greatest footballer of all time is may never really be settled.

While Lionel Messi is the most popular answer to the question, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pele and Diego Maradona are also regular responses. 

The latter, however, will always hold a special place in the hearts of Argentinian fans for his exploits in the 1986 World Cup.

And as brilliant as Messi has been - for both club and country - he has never been able to win the World Cup and step out of Maradona's shadow.
