Lionel Messi’s break from international football is over after the Barcelona captain was named in Lionel Scaloni’s latest squad.

The Barcelona captain hasn’t featured since the 2018 World Cup in Russia but could return to action for La Albiceleste in March.

Argentina play a couple of friendlies later this month. The first is against Venezuela at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on March 22.

Scaloni’s men then play Morocco in Tangier four days later, although reports have suggested Messi will only play against Venezuela.
