This happens with many greats and Messi is one among them , Marco Van Bastan of Holland, Ruddi Gullit , Scifo etc are few to name here. There can be several reasons for not not performing/ contributing in big tournamnets either the opposition is more conscious/ mindful in making strategy or they are heavily marked. Let us hope he overcome this and do wonders for Argentina like great Maradona did.

He might break the record of highest number of goals in a single season but as you told he is yet to fire big guns in bigger tournaments. Even in last FIFA world cup there was a big expectation from him but nothing great happened!
