Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera has revealed he is relishing the opportunity to face Lionel Messi and Argentina in the CONMEBOL 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Friday.
Messi recently went back on his decision to retire from international football after meeting with new boss Edgardo Bauza in the build-up to this fixture, and the Galatasaray shot-stopper is glad the FC Barcelona superstar did so.
"For us, to play against a player like Messi is beautiful," Muslera told reporters, as quoted by FourFourTwo.
"To share the pitch with players like Messi, but not only him – Luis (Suarez) too, Edi (Cavani) are top players.
"It is nice, very enjoyable and also makes the match more exciting."
Argentina are currently in third position, behind Uruguay and Ecuador, in their World Cup qualifying group, with 11 points.
