sports Updated: Sep 05, 2011 23:31 IST

Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella has dismissed talk of revenge when his side take on Nigeria in a friendly in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka on Tuesday.

Argentina lost 4-1 to Nigeria in Abuja in June when their former coach Sergio Batista fielded a very inexperienced side.

“I don't think about any revenge, it's no good for human beings, it's no good for anyone, we will try to win but I don't think we will go for revenge,” Sabella said. “It's different game because we came here with a stronger team, but we will see tomorrow. I don't know what they kind of team they will field.

Talking about the team’s new captain he said, “There are different kind of captains, one for personality and another because they are great players. We must letMessi be happy. We must let him be completely free on the pitch.”
