Argentina coach says Messi fit to play Spain in Madrid

Argentina coach says Messi fit to play Spain in Madrid

Moving from the right, when we cut inside, the whole pitch is in front of us.

"We want to get rid of the bad taste and win the World Cup".

"He trained with the squad, so he's OK to play", said Sampaoli, who admitted it was "impossible to teach Messi anything".

Lopetegui has to decide whether to use Tuesday to give game time to players who didn't figure in Germany and that could see Marcos Alonso given a chance to make his debut at left back, while Lucas Vazquez and Iago Aspas could also give some real pace to the Spain attack.

The Barcelona superstar missed Argentina's 2-0 win over Italy in Manchester due to a hamstring problem but is hopeful of being involved at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday.

Sampaoli has previously suggested that football owes Messi a World Cup win, given all that he has done for the game, but he is also aware that it will take a collective effort in Russian Federation if Argentina are to emerge victorious.

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

And despite training with Argentina he is going to be given time off to recover with the World Cup coming up this summer.

"He was tested yesterday and tried again today".

But Spain and Argentina fans hoping for a glimpse of him will be disappointed at the match in Madrid tonight.

"We are looking toward to a fantastic match, in a great setting against the World Cup finalist, which has a player that is among the best ever", Lopetegui said.

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

"It's more hard for us to play there, I don't often go out to the left".
