Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala, who started only one game for Argentina at the 2019 Copa America, feels he has proved he can play alongside FC Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi.
The Bianconeri playmaker was finally given a start in Argentina's third-place play-off against Chile, featuring for 67 minutes and scoring in their 2-1 win.
Having not lined up alongside Messi often in the past, Dybala was delighted with the understanding he had with the 32-year-old in the game, despite the captain being sent off late in the first half.
"I think I've shown that I can play with Messi," he told Ole.
"It's a question of knowing each other better, of finding some chemistry, of seeing where and how each of us moves.
"There was a good system of play. It happened with Leo against Chile and also with Kun (Sergio Aguero).
"Before the game, we spoke about these movements, with one staying further forward and the other dropping deep to get the ball. We did things well. I'm happy."
Dybala has played 24 times for the Albiceleste thus far, scoring two goals along the way.
