Lionel Messi returns but Angel Di Maria ruled out of Argentina friendlies

The 31-year-old, who has netted six goals in his past three games, last scored for Argentina in their dramatic late win over Nigeria to advance to the round of 16 at Russian Federation 2018.

Now the 31-year-old is back in the fold and has been pictured training alongside his countrymen as they prepare to take on Venezuela then Morocco.

Genetic specialist and head of the European Genome Archive, Arcadi Navarro, explained on the Cadena SER programme Què t'hi jugues that with current technology it would be possible to create a clone of Barcelona's Argentine striker, Lionel Messi.

The 31-year-old had been called up to represent his country for the first time since the Albiceleste's 4-3 defeat to France in the last 16 of last year's World Cup in Russian Federation, reports Efe news.

"I see him with important emotional fatigue between the Champions League and the national team".

"We're very happy", Musso told reporters.

Musso is hoping to make his first senior appearance for Argentina having joined Udinese from Racing Club in 2018.

Meanwhile, Cesar Luis Menotti - coach of the 1978 World Cup-winning Argentina squad - has voiced his concern over the burden placed on Messi when he is with his national side.

Argentina played six times without Messi to close 2018, including friendly wins over Guatemala, Iraq and two wins over Mexico.

Argentina then play Morocco in their second friendly on March 26 in Tangier.

After a poor World Cup in Russian Federation, coach Lionel Scaloni could do without losing one of his in-form players as he looks to rejuvenate his squad ahead of the Copa America this summer.
