The Manchester Untied manager, in collaboration with RT, is back to his transparent board to select the knock-out stage matches and the match-up in the final of this year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 33-year-old is also unhappy at comments Lopetegui has made regarding Lionel Messi in the past calling him the best player in the world.

The Portuguese manager just "has to" select his home nation and "knows what [he] wants" with their opponents.

Lionel Messi will go down as one of the greatest and in the past, people have gone above and beyond to get a glimpse of the five-time Balon d'Or victor, but a latest craze involving the Barcelona forward is just a bit too weird, for my liking.

He leaves the ultimate result to the viewers' imaginations.

In an honest interview, the former Real Madrid striker sided slightly with the Barcelona forward. "He has extraordinary players and a coach which has given him a plus", he added.

He did, however, manage to win the European Championships with Portugal two years ago.

He will have a chance to prove his future coach wrong at the World Cup when Spain play against Portugal in the group stage. "There are no words to describe him", said admiring team-mate Joao Mario at Portugal's base near Moscow this week.

He was just 19 then, and has gone on to become his country's leading scorer with 81 worldwide goals.

He lasted just 25 minutes before coming off injured in the Euro 2016 final, watching from the sidelines as Eder's extra-time goal shocked France.

Messi and Ronaldo will both be in action for their respective countries at the 2018 FIFA World Cup over the course of the next month.

But he also needs to act as a father figure to the talented young members of Fernando Santos's squad, like Bernardo Silva, Goncalo Guedes and Gelson Martins. Without looking to deeply he said this yesterday on Spanish television: "Cristiano is one of the players of his generation and Portugal have a magnificent team, they are the champions of Europe".

While both players are already considered bonafide all-time greats, neither has a World Cup winners' medal in his collection.

That experience, and inside knowledge of numerous Spain players, will be crucial on Friday by the Black Sea.
