Mumbai:

With only 10 days to go for the Argentina vs Venezuela friendly in Kolkata, organisers are working hard to get the venue ready on time, and according to international standards.

The dressing rooms in the 1,20,000 capacity Salt Lake Stadium will be ready within the next 2-3 days. At least 25 new lockers are being set up in the dressing rooms apart from four new massage tables. Argentina's dressing room is being painted white and sky blue in order to make Lionel Messi and his men feel at home.

Even the curtains will sport the colours of Argentina's national team jersey. "We want to make them (Argentina) feel at home," Bhaswar Goswami told MiD DAY on behalf of the organizers. Messi is expected to arrive in Kolkata on August 29, a day after his teammates.
