Messi Addresses Dybala Absence from Argentina Squad

Vazquez wants Spain to face Messi

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.

Isco scored his first global hat-trick as Spain continued their preparations for the World Cup with an astonishing 6-1 victory over Argentina in a pulsating and competitive friendly.

Vice-captain Javier Mascherano has already announced he will retire from worldwide duty after the World Cup, while Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria and Gonzalo Higuain will all be 30 come the finals.

"If there was any risk [of injury or aggravating the problem by playing], Leo would have said".

"He was tested yesterday and tried again today".

Lionel Messi says he hopes to make his return to action with Argentina when they face Spain in a friendly global this evening.

But not much. His remarks to Viva magazine, a Sunday supplement in Clarin, were metaphoric, but Messi has been the scapegoat for the Albiceleste before and failure to lift the game's greatest prize this summer will likely lead to more criticism.

The proposals require backing from the European Parliament and the 28 EU countries, but they are divided on the issue. But the Computer and Communications Industry Association immediately branded the scheme "discriminatory and harmful".

"Muscle fatigue" in his hamstrings is cited as Messi's specific reason for reportedly sitting out Tuesday's fixture at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.

"You can't teach him anything".

"He told me: "If you do not play, you can not come". Because this is it, we have to think that this could be the last for this group of players", he said.

"Luckily, the dialogue with him is very constant".

'Alongside me in the national team he had to play more on the left, maybe he's not so used to that.

He even has personal regrets after missing a key chance to score in the game, one that he says he would have taken differently given the opportunity to replay it. "We will go through this together".

However, Tapia dismissed the idea that Barca had put pressure on Argentina not to play Messi against Spain.
