Lionel Messi to Line Up against Spain on Tuesday

'World Cup is a revolver to Messi's head' - Sampaoli claims Argentina star damaged by pressure

"It's not correct to say that Paulo is out of the World Cup", the Albiceleste boss said in his pre-Spain Press conference.

Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli spent last season at Sevilla before being called on to help Argentina seal their qualification for this summer in Brazil, while Leo Messi needs no introduction to Spanish fans.

"It is impossible to teach him anything".

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

Spain coach Julen Lopetegui insisted he was only interested in the performance of his own side as he prepares for Tuesday's friendly against Argentina in Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

Nevertheless, the occasionally feisty nature of their Clasico showdowns does not give Sampaoli any cause for concern over Messi's fitness. "He's fine to play", Sampaoli said.

Iranian hackers targeted Hawaii state computers
The nature of the papers is not yet known, but it is thought that the research could help in the development of nuclear weapons. The nine Iranians named in the indictment reportedly hacked 36 American companies and five USA government agencies.

The 30-year-old admits that the Juventus star play the same role as he does for his Italian side, and added that the two of them had talked about the matter. "Messi doesn't only have an incredible talent but it is his love for the game that seperates him from other great players.".

Valencia's Rodrigo Moreno started and scored Spain's goal in a 1-1 draw with Germany in Dusseldorf on Friday.

"We've just played the world champions (Germany) and now face the runners-up who have an incredible player, who collectively have improved with the arrival of Sampaoli".

"When we're preparing for a game we're not thinking about what's in front of us", Lopetegui said.

Messi will square off against Spain and Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, a clash that could contradict the match's friendly status.

"I was left with the choice to play against Italy and didn't, but I trained normally, I felt good, so I hope to play".
