'He is very tired' - Menotti anxious about Messi ahead of Argentina friendlies

Lionel Messi Argentina 2018

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 matches mark a return to worldwide football for Lionel Messi, who has also been absent from Argentina's squad since the World Cup.

The Barcelona captain did not finish training at Valdebebas on Tuesday and has been suffering from a hip problem for a few weeks.

The FC Barcelona star has been called up for for global friendly matches against Venezuela and Morocco, but Cesar Luis Menotti, who led Argentina to the 1978 FIFA World Cup title, believes Messi should be rested for these friendlies to keep him fresh for the summer. "In spite of my youth I have the chance to train him", Scaloni told reporters in Thursday's press conference, where he proceeded to announce his starting line-up.

"If there's a favourite to win the Champions League, it's Barcelona", the Spurs boss said.

Speaking to Sky Sports Italia, Capello weighed in on Cristiano Ronaldo's tremendous hattrick against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League that allowed Juventus to overturn a 2-0 first leg deficit, but refused to put him in the same cader as Lionel Messi.

Angel Di Maria will not feature in either match having pulled out of the squad on Wednesday with a muscle injury.

The Paris Saint-Germain star had been participating with the Albiceleste in Madrid in preparation of two upcoming friendlies.

Mauro Icardi has been included on several occasions by Scaloni, but was omitted from this squad - the final call-up prior to the Copa America - due to his dispute with Inter.
