Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni says Lionel Messi is “ready to play” for the national team ahead of World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Paraguay.
Scaloni offered an update ahead of Argentina’s next match and said that while Messi has had an ankle issue he is ready to go.
“Leo trained with us normally. He has been experiencing discomfort in his ankle but it does not prevent him from playing, so for us he is fit and available. We’ll see if anything changes tomorrow, but in principle he’s ready to play.”

First up for Argentina is the visit of Paraguay on Thursday at La Bombonera before a trip to Peru. Scaloni’s side won their first two qualifiers against Bolivia and Ecuador last month.
