That's the spirit! Now Messi should learn from this and put some pressure on his federation too. The national team is only on Saturday, so doesn't really matter if they're there on Monday or Tuesday.

Alves probably won't play for Brasil.

ye thats the difference. He's likely only gonna play 20 minutes if he's subbed in.

The problem is that the FIFA rules say he needs to go. So if he wants or not, that doesn't really matter. We have to count on the goodwill of the Brazilian federation.
