REUTERS – Ahead of their international friendly in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Brazil coach Tite has singled out a returning Lionel Messi for praise on Thursday (November 14).

Messi is set to return to the international fold with Argentina on Friday (November 15) after a three-month international ban for claiming the Copa America was ‘corrupt’ having received a red card in the third-place play-off match against Chile. Tite described Messi’s qualities as impressive and that no side in the world could neutralize him, but rather only reduce his influence.

Meanwhile, Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni stressed the importance Messi has on his side and that they would be focusing on their game instead of that of the Brazilians.
