Lionel Messi has yet to make his Paris Saint.Germain debut and is set to be out on Sunday in an away game against Reims, so his last game was a month and a half ago in the Copa America final, but for the Argentina squad ahead of the three games in early September, including in Brazil, he has been called as usual.
Messi will also be on the team with his teammate, Angel Di Maria, while the one who was not on Lionel Scaloni’s squad last month and will now return to represent the team is Paulo Dybala, the Juventus striker. Emiliano Boandia, Aston Villa’s new acquisition, as well as stopper Villarreal Juan Poyet, are also back in national uniforms.
Lautro Martinez also retained his place in the squad, while Mauro Icardi – who is also currently collaborating with Messi at Paris Saint.Germain and appeared to have been called up for the first time in almost three years – was injured at the weekend and was not called up again. Sergio Aguero, who moved to Barcelona this summer but was injured and may only return in October, will of course not be available for the national team and Lucas Ocampus will also be removed from the squad once again.
Argentina, who beat Brazil and then celebrated their first title with the team, will play three World Cup qualifiers in September in a little over a year in Qatar: first they will host Venezuela (September 3), then play Brazil in Sao Paulo ( 5.9) and she will finish the national team window in the game in Buenos Aires against Bolivia (September 10).
