Barcelona: Lionel Messi has sore hamstring but will make Argentina trip

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno explains why he believes Lionel Messi will improve on last season.

Lionel Messi may be a doubt for Argentina's World Cup qualifiers next week after Barcelona confirmed on Monday that their star has a sore left hamstring.

The 29-year-old underwent tests at Barca's training ground on Monday after he ended Sunday's 1-0 La Liga win against Athletic Bilbao in discomfort.

However, the Blaugrana remain happy for the player to travel to South America and link up with Edgardo Bauza's squad.

Questions loom over Argentina ahead of Bauza's first match in charge

ESPN FC's Craig Burley takes issue with Lionel Messi's sudden return to the national team.

The weekend before international dates is always a stressful time for national team bosses, worrying about their players getting injured in action for their clubs.

Coaches of South American national teams have extra causes for concern, with the continent's Russia 2018 qualification campaign entering into its second third.

Their star players face long flights back from Europe and there is virtually no time available to get them together on the training ground. In the previous campaign, the games...

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno explains why he believes Lionel Messi will improve on last season.
Goals from Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ardan Turan gave Barcelona an emphatic 6-2 victory to begin their La Liga campaign.
Luis Enrique says his current crop is the best he's led during his time at the club.
The Argentinian FA have confirmed that star forward Lionel Messi has come out of international retirement.

Diego Maradona has suggested Lionel Messi "staged" his retirement from international football after Argentina lost the Copa America Centenario final to Chile earlier this summer.

Messi, 29, called time on his Albiceleste career after a third final defeat in as many years, following losses to Germany at the World Cup in 2014 and Chile in the Copa America last year.

However, he has since reversed his decision and forms part of new manager Edgardo Bauza's first squad for next week's World Cup qualifiers...

Argentina's all-time leading scorer, with 55 goals in 113 appearances, quit in frustration after missing a penalty in the shootout defeat to Chile -- his...
