As expected Lionel Messi has been left out of the latest Argentina squad which was announced on Friday.

Reports earlier this week had claimed that the Barcelona star will take a break from international football and not feature again for La Albiceleste in 2018.

Interim coach Lionel Scaloni has not called up Messi for Argentina’s next two friendly games against Colombia and the United States in September.

There’s been no word from Messi himself, so we’ll have to wait and see what his plans are and when and if he plans to return to the international scene.
