Not really.

I don't call missing a PK in a major tournament putting your team on your back.

Messi has won absolutely nothing with Argentina, and that's why he gets so much heat in his own country. They couldn't even win a watered down Copa America last year.

That being said, soccer is very much a team sport and maybe once in a blue moon can one player put the team on his back. I don't necessarily blame him for Argentina's failures, but I don't follow Argentina enough to know what their problem is. Higuan's penchant for screwing the pooch in big games is certainly part of it though.
