ARGENTINA FIXTURES 

Venezuela (H) – Friday – friendly

Morocco (A) – March 26 – friendly 

The Argentina superstar scored one goal in four matches in the tournament against Nigeria in a 2-1 victory. 

The Barcelona forward decided to take a break after his national side were knocked out of the World Cup.

He has missed the last eight friendlies in which Lionel Scaloni’s side have won four, drawn one and lost one without him. 

Argentina face Venezuela on Friday before taking on Morocco the following Tuesday. 

Scaloni said when he called Messi up: ‘We’ll decide later if he plays one game or two. I will make that decision.’ 

Messi’s form for his club has been far superior as he is the top scorer in Europe’s top five leagues. 

He scored a hat-trick against Real Betis in which he was applauded by the opposition fans for his sensational third goal.
