Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has left the team’s camp, following a 3-1 loss to Venezuela in an international friendly played in Madrid. The team announced, after the loss, that Messi will miss Tuesday’s match against Morocco, as a precaution, following a groin injury.
Messi returned to international duty for the first time since the 2018 World Cup on Friday, but it was a disappointing night for the forward.
Venezuela put three past their more illustrious rivals, with goals from Salomon Rondon, Jhon Murillo and Josef Martinez.
Lautaro Martinez scored Argentina’s consolation.
