Lionel Messi lands in Argentina, signs autographs for waiting fans


Lionel Messi along with Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes landed in Argentina as coach Lionel Scaloni has the entire squad at his disposal.

Messi, Di Maria and Paredes were the last three to land but Messi had fans waiting for him. The three landed on Tuesday morning while the rest of the squad was all there by Monday. However, when landing, they were greeted by two fans.

Videos on social media show the Argentine players arriving and entering a van waiting to take them to join the rest of the squad. But one of the videos recorded by one fan shows Messi entering the van as the fan starts saying that they are only two and that they have been there since 4:00 am waiting.

The video goes on for several seconds until Messi leaves the van, signs their autographs.

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni will hold a training on Tuesday afternoon as the Copa America champions play Paraguay on Thursday in a World Cup qualifier.


  1. Juan Foyth should start in October qualifiers as he did not play in September qualifiers. Foyth was looking more solid than ever and his errors due to containing ball for too much time and inviting pressure has also become rare now he plays good with maturity he will become more good player. Argentina’s right half is becoming too much strong.
    Foyth and Acuna are best Fullback for Argentina.I am also happy for Medina he can play LCB or LB role.

    • Foyth, Romero, Licha Martinez and Medina could possibly form a world cup winning back line with EMI Martinez in goal behind the. The midfield other than De Paul are still work in progress. To make it world class move Messi to midfield. This would not only make Messi do the playmaking, which he usually does playing forward but would crucially free the RF role for Dybala or Nico Ginzalez to play in their natural position. Nico was standout in that position for both Argentinos and Stuttgart, but his reputation took a beating during the Copa where he was played out of position on the left. Now he is struggling big time at Fiorentina playing out of position on the left and look mediocre playing alongside Vlahovic. This is a bad sign for the NT. Nico has to do something and quickly to help himself and the NT. we need him.
      Very excited about how Alvarez is developing.

  2. I am really looking forward to Messi scoring plenty of goals silencing his critics aka Cristina fans and forcing PSG management rethink their strategy on how to use him!
