World Cup 2010: Argentina's Carlos Tevez Hails 'Amazing' Lionel Messi

Argentina forward Carlos Tevez has admitted he is amazed by the talents of Lionel Messi as the Albicelestes continue their preparation for the World Cup finals.

"Everything Messi does surprises me. Each training session is different. It's amazing to watch him play, to train with him. Messi is an impressive guy. He shows it in every training session, at dinner, at meals," said Tevez, according to AS.

Tevez also stated that he doesn't know if he will start for Argentina when they begin their World Cup quest next week.

"I do not know if I'll play, there's been no indication. I do not know what Diego thinks, really. I think we could play with three strikers, I would play on the left with Lionel Messi a little further back, or as he plays with Barcelona," he noted before adding that the team are in good spirits ahead of the start of the tournament.

"We are very good. The team is happy, we're having a great time, plenty of time together and having fun. We are very calm and very confident in ourselves."
