West Ham United's Development Squad were given the arduous task of keeping Argentina in check this evening when Gerardo 'Tata' Martino's World Cup runners-up dropped in to the club's Rush Green training ground for a practise match.

The likes of Dan Potts and Blair Turgott had the opportunity to test themselves against Lionel Messi and co. when United's Under 21s provided the opposition against the Argentinians, ahead of their friendly with Croatia at the Boleyn Ground tomorrow night.

Messi was joined by the likes of Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria and former Hammers duo Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez at West Ham United's Rush Green training ground - plus hundreds of local school children determined to get a glimpse of their idols.

West Ham have announced that tickets for tomorrow night's friendly will be available on the door. Tickets may also be purchased in advance by calling 0871 529 1966, or from the club's ticket office at the Boleyn Ground.
