Tottenham loanee Bruno Uvini: Argentina are more than Messi
Bruno Uvini, who spent the second-half of last season on loan at Tottenham, is set to face Argentina this weekend and will come up against Lionel Messi - the player universally regarded as the world's best.
Uvini, 20, believes that Brazil cannot afford to single out Messi, though, as Argentina with so many other major talents can hurt Brazil in many ways.
"It's not necessary to define Messi with my words," Uvini told Globo Esporte. "He is currently the best player in the world.
"But Argentina are not only Messi. They also have [Sergio] Aguero, [Angel] Di Maria, [Gonzalo] Higuain ... We cannot think only of Messi, we have to respect Argentina as a whole.
"I always have butterflies in my stomach," he continued. "But this is normal. We study the opponent, know everything about them, but we must have confidence in our own football. There can be no fear.”
