Lionel MESSI available for World Cup Qualifiers!


The game against Athletic Bilbao over the weekend left MESSI with various knocks and Barcelona wanted him to undergo various medical examinations as a precaution. After undergoing medical tests it has been confirmed that MESSI will be flying to Argentina along with MASCHERANO today and will arrive sometime early tomorrow morning.  It has not been confirmed as of yet if he will start or come off the bench for Argentina’s first match against Uruguay. As always, we will keep you guys up-to-date.









  1. It is a shame Icardi is being frozen out of the side.

    Two other nines of note who I think left Argentina prematurely are Lucas Boye and Ezequiel Ponce. They have wasted last season but Ponce is at Granada and doing well in what is a fairly poor team.

    Players like Ascacibar who is also a very good passer of the ball should be allowed at the very least to train at Ezeiza with the senior players. And learn from players in Santiago’s case Mascherano.

    Pity is also doing well at River along with Driussi and Alario. The first two seem to be maturing and showing the talent they had in the junior divisions. Alario seems to thrive under pressure. He and Icardi I would pencil in for the nine role. Goodbye to the choker.

    PS Nice to see some of the old WC Blog posters still here. I was Aurelius. 😉

    • Pity Martinez is near to his best finally. But it’s still not his best. He is extremaly talented.

      Boye would be competition for Icardi but he needs time. Looks like Torino isn’t good place for him because of Belotti.

  2. the king is back!!!

    as of this moment, i believe dybala is as equal as putting both kun and pipita together in the team.
    and as of now, i don’t care who’s going to be the number 9, as i don’t see bauza calling icardi anytime soon.

    vamos vamos, bring on dracula and co.!!

  3. Trio Alario, Driussi, Martinez have scored against Banfield again. I think if Icardi won’t be called up now and Alario will do some good thing in upcoming games I don’t see Icardi in NT short term.

  4. “Aguero will stay in Manchester. An injury to Aguero is nothing new. We have decided that he’ll stay there and continue recovery.”

    “Let’s see how players arrive. They’ll end party & arrive here travelling 14h. NT player is not what he does but what I ask them to”

    -Edgardo Bauza
