The coach said that because he had no "power to tell the club (FC Barcelona)" how many minutes Messi should play, he would not hesitate to rest his superstar in worldwide matches when he thought it was warranted.

One of the more intriguing global friendlies on Saturday saw Argentina win 1-0 in Russian Federation.

Aguero fed star Lionel Messi for an opening that was thwarted by a goal-line clearance early in the second half, while Denis Glushakov went close with a pair of rare opportunities for the host of next year's World Cup.

Driussi has been earmarked as a potential Argentina team-mate of Messi's having impressed coming through the ranks.

Croatia cruise, Swiss earn away win
The World Cup Playoff matches in Europe have begun, with Croatia and Switzerland taking huge leads to carry into the second legs. The Blazers have a very talented squad featuring players like Mandzukic, Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.


The two-time World Cup winners have now won two matches in a row for the first time since June. "There was more vertical play with [Alejandro] Gomez next to [Angel] di Maria, interesting movements between Aguero and Messi, many movements on the wings", Sampaoli told reporters.

Three minutes later, Aguero forced Akinfeev into a diving save to deny his attempt from just outside the box.

After the interval Argentina continued to dominate possession and kept Russia's defence under constant pressure but failed to find the net before the 86th minute.

He latched onto Messi's pass and found Aguero with a cut-back from the right side of the box. Argentina will play Nigeria in Krasnodar on Tuesday.
