“We are used to the pressure,” he told reporters.

“They will be to complicated, very hard games. We need to win and we are mentally prepared for that.

“Pressure always exists, but that shouldn not affect us. We have to think about ourselves.

“Argentina has some very good players and we will be completely focussed on what we need to do.”
