"However, I knew he was going to do it for us at the vital moments".

Spain play Argentina in Madrid on Tuesday night in what promises to be one of the most interesting of the World Cup preparation matches this week.

"I spoke to Paulo about [those comments], what he said is the truth", the Argentina captain told Fox Sports.

Spain midfielder Thiago Alcantara, who played with Messi at Barcelona before moving to current club Bayern Munich, said he was glad Messi was ready to play.

"There is a "Messi dependency" generated by Messi himself because of how incredible he is on the pitch, but we can not rest just on that", Sampaoli wrote.

Lionel Messi has admitted that he has struggled to build up an on-pitch rapport with Paulo Dybala because the Argentina stars play so similarly. We are playing well as a team, the philosophy is sensational... "If I would hit that ball in some other way, maybe like I did against Chelsea the other day from a similar position", added Messi.

Of the last five clashes, Spain have won three while Argentina have taken two victories. I always see him at a high level of compromise with the national team and its wishes. The match is one of the last essays for both teams before the 2018 World Cup of Russian Federation. From there, we must make a team surrounding that.

He said: "My idea is to play against Spain".

"One who has kept himself for 10 years as the best player in the world alters your way of coaching", Sampaoli wrote. He's the best player in the world and we need to ensure that everything we do is geared towards him being comfortable.

Though Isco has not been able to nail down a starting berth at Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane, he has been a regular for Spain since the last Euros. "Isco is doing really well, he's training well, he's happy; let's hope we continue enjoying his football for a long time to come".
