Messi couldn’t finish training with Argentina because of the ‘pain in pubis’

Argentina news outlet TNT Sports report that Leo Messi could not finish the training session with Argentina because he felt pain in his pubis.

Nevertheless, he is still expected to start against Venezuela on Friday, March 22.

“Leo is back in, but we have yet to determine whether he will play one or both games as he comes with a high workload and a lot of game time,” the head coach said. “I will decide whether he plays one game, both games or none because he has big games ahead with his club and we hope he arrives in good condition.”

According to earlier reports by Superclasico, the idea of the Argentina national team coaching staff is for Leo to only play the first game against Venezuela that is going to take place in Spain. They are ready to let him leave the side and not travel to Morocco for the second friendly.
