Sergio AGUERO is out for Argentina while Lionel MESSI is a doubt for the remainder of the matches.
When the Argentina National Team takes the pitch at the Etihad for their friendly match against Italy, they will be without both Sergio AGUERO and their captain Lionel MESSI. The AFA have announced through their official Twitter account that the Manchester City star is out of the squad for both the matches against Italy later tonight and the match against Spain. AGUERO will continue to recover from his knee injury.
As for Lionel MESSI, the Barcelona man will not make the squad against Italy due to a muscle fatigue. MESSI, who won’t even be on the bench for the match, could make the Argentina team for the game against Spain on Tuesday. However, that is not yet confirmed.
Speaking with TyC Sports at the Etihad Stadium, here’s what Lionel MESSI had to say:
“I always want to play but there’s still a long way until the World Cup.”
