Messi to miss Argentina's game against Morocco
The Barça star picks up an injury on his international return
Lionel Messi did not have the return to international action that he would have wanted, and an injury picked up on Friday night means he will miss Argentina's game against Morocco on Tuesday.
The FC Barcelona star captained his side and played the entire 90 minutes of the friendly against Venezuela at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, but they would lose 1-3. It was his first appearance since the 2018 World Cup quarter final loss against France, which was followed by a short-lived international retirement for Argentina's all-time top goalscorer.
Whilst he would feature from start to finish, a problem with his pubis means that Messi will not play in the second friendly of the international break.
