Tango could get Messi for Savage

Things may get a bit Messi as Strictly Come Dancing star Robbie Savage limbers up for a tango.

The former Welsh international was handed an Argentina squad shirt to get him in the right frame of mind for tomorrow's dance.

Argentinian soccer great Lionel Messi often wears a number ten shirt when he is playing for his national team and Barcelona.

Robbie has been perfecting his tango with partner Ola Jordan for this week's Broadway-themed edition of the BBC1 show.

But he said he was still not confident about his abilities as he prepared today for his third live dance.

"Obviously I'm feeling very very nervous about tomorrow night - again. Bag of nerves, but just do my best," Robbie said.
