Messi To Miss Argentina Friendlies Games Against Iraq, Brazil

Lionel Messi

interim coach, Lionel Scaloni, has confirmed that Lionel would miss their friendlies next month, casting further doubt over the star’s international future.

Messi, 31, missed Argentina’s matches against Guatemala and Colombia earlier this month and has now been ruled out of their friendlies in October.

Argentina are heading to Saudi Arabia to face on October 11 and five days later.

“I talked to him and we still think that the best thing is that he doesn’t come, that he’s not in.

“We are in a different stage and these guys have to keep putting on the shirt of the national team and see what they show, which is the most important thing,” Scaloni told Fox Sports on Monday.

Messi last played for Argentina at the World Cup in Russia, where they made a last-16 exit to eventual champions France.
