Barcelona captain Lionel Messi will make his return to international football for Argentina in November, according to boss Lionel Scaloni.

The GOAT is currently serving a three-match ban for his comments at the Copa America after he was sent off against Chile.

He will be absent for Argentina’s clash against Ecuador on Sunday, but Scaloni expects Messi to return for November’s game against Paraguay.

“Messi is not here due to suspension,” he said.

”Sergio Aguero is not here because he’s been carrying a problem and has not been training 100 per cent with his club.

”Surely both will be here next month.”

Messi’s had an injury-interrupted start to the season and has only made five appearances in all competitions for Barcelona.

He bagged his first goal of the new campaign in Barca’s win over Sevilla last time out that helped the club move into second ahead of the international break.
