Spain goalkeeper, David De Gea, says he is eager to face Lionel Messi in Tuesday’s friendly against Argentina.
Messi missed his team’s 2-0 win over Italy on Friday with a sore right adductor muscle, but trained on Sunday and Monday in Madrid.
The Barcelona superstar is set to feature against Spain at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
“We want to face the best players and Messi is one of them.
“As a goalkeeper, it’s a challenge to face Messi.
“We are going through a good spell. We have to maintain this line and hope to arrive in the best form possible at the World Cup.
“We have a wonderful group, we get on well together and that is also transmitted on the pitch. We have ambition, enthusiasm and a great group,” De Gea said in Monday’s news conference.
