By Koustav Shaw @@GodKoustav

The ITA vs ARG Clash –

The Italians are still trying to process the fact that they wouldn’t be participating in this World Cup despite winning it in 2006. For the Argentines, they have Lionel Messi who scored a hattrick against Ecuador to fix a spot for Argentina in this  World Cup. Argentina’s coach Sampaoli may use this match as an assessment for the entire player in his squad so that he can create the best team to support the Barcelona star and football wizard Lionel Messi. Addressing to the press he said that this match would be for assessing potential additions to his final World Cup panel in the upcoming friendly games but he has left no doubt as to what he wants from them and that is to work well with the Barcelona star. Even in a press conference he said,”Each time he plays better,” Sampaoli told reporters. “For me this is the headline: This is Messi’s team. To have the best in the world on the pitch generates different themes to develop regarding the main idea of management. We have to see, within the format that we use, which players can connect better with Messi.”

I always hate talking about myself because it feels weird to talk about myself honestly. Ever think that it's weird? No? Just me? My bad. Always hungry, always sleepy and in between always writing. Hope you won't mind!
