Lionel Messi insists he has no issue with Argentine teammate Dybala

With Messi likely to be named in the Argentina line-up against Spain for their friendly clash on Tuesday at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, the Red Devils goalkeeper will be more than happy if he gets a busy night on goal.

Argentina, who beat Italy 2-0 in Manchester last Friday, will play Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria in Group D at the World Cup.

"Messi has a revolver put to his head called the World Cup", he said.

"He's untouchable, you need to understand that and try to create situations in training that fit around him and from there pick a side with a view to that", Sampaoli told a news conference on Monday.

"You can't teach him anything".

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

They also visited an organization called Catalyst Inc, which helps support scientific innovation in Northern Ireland . "She loves her yoga, in fact, she starts most mornings with a yoga ritual and that's rubbed off on Prince Harry ".

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

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". Dybala has to be pleased as he might participate in this summer's World Cup with Argentina after all.

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.

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

"It's more hard for us to play there, I don't often go out to the left". That's why I nearly never go play as a left wing. "But we want the best players to be on the pitch and Messi is one of them".

Spain and Argentina are seen as two leading contenders at the World Cup in Russian Federation which runs from June 14 to July 15.
