Messi Back In Argentina Squad After Serving Ban

Messi Back In Argentina Squad

Lionel Messi is now eligible to play for Argentina again following a three-month ban for criticism of CONMEBOL during the Copa America.

The Barca star has been called up to their squad for Argentina’s November fixtures.

He has not featured for his country since the Copa America third-place playoff between Argentina and Chile, in which he was sent off.

The Albiceleste will take on Brazil on November 15 in Saudi Arabia and Uruguay on November 19 in Israel.

There are only two players from LaLiga Santander on the list, with Lucas Ocampos of Sevilla joining Messi as the other one in Lionel Scaloni's squad.

Nehuen Perez, though, is also in the list and he is officially an Atletico Madrid player, as he is spending this season on loan from Los Rojiblancos at Portuguese side Famalicao.
