  • Argentina's press goes ballistic after 6-1 thrashing by Spain

"But we want the best players to be on the pitch and Messi is one of them". He has yet to make a decision on his Argentina future but would be 35 by the time of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

"Paulo and I talked about that, what he said is true, for Juventus he plays the same role I do", Messi told Fox Sports. "With me in the national team he played further out on the left, which he's not as used to".

Last week, Messi was forced to miss his nation's 2-0 victory over Italy, but the Barcelona star had suggested that he was on course to feature against Spain in Madrid.

There is so much pressure on Argentina superstar Lionel Messi at the World Cup that it is nearly like putting a revolver to his head.

The country last lifted the trophy in 1986 when Diego Maradona was named player of the tournament.

"It's the official ball of the World Cup, and everyone is kicking and screaming about it, but it is what it is", Lopetegui said.

"He trained yesterday and today and if he stays as he is there'll be no worries about him playing".




However, the two-time World Cup winners will be without Angel di Maria, who hurt his thigh against Italy, and Sergio Aguero, with the Manchester City striker recovering from a knee injury.

Argentina face Spain in Madrid tonight.

Speaking ahead of Brazil's game against Germany, he said: "I think that Coutinho is a player who is on the same level as Ney, he has a massive influence on our game and in his teams".

"We made a decision to wait for this game [against Italy] to rest, but I'm optimistic about playing against Spain".

At Juventus he plays just like me, we look for the same spaces.
