- BUENOS AIRES, July 14, 2011 (AFP) - The Uruguayan coach Oscar Tabarez, acknowledged Thursday that Lionel Messi is a difficult problem for any team, but Uruguay also has weapons to face Argentina, on Saturday, when they face for the quarterfinals of the 2011 Copa America.
"Messi can create many problems that will not disappear, but fortunately there are many things we can do that neither Messi or anybody else can stop”, said Tabarez.
Tabarez added: " we’ll look how could (the FC Barcelona, of Spain) do to us the least damage possible, but this is a football game and nobody knows what will be its development."
"There is a popular saying: if you have a problem and you have the solution, why worry. And if you have a problem and not the solution, why care?" said the coach. "Messi we can create many problems to us, and it will not disappear even if we try to avoid them."
Tabarez, on the other hand, gave no clues about what will be the eleventh players to face the derby ‘rioplatense’. "The team to play against Argentina still I cannot give", ended the coach.
