Argentina Star Calls For Messi To Return

One of the most in-form Argentine strikers in Europe has called for FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi to return to the national team following his absence from the squad since the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

'I've Always Preferred Ronaldo To Messi'

With Messi last making an appearance for his country at the World Cup in Russia, he has since sat out the first international break of the new season, and will also not feature in the coming break.

It is unknown as to whether or not the five-time Ballon d'Or winner will return to the Albiceleste in the future, but the general feeling in the camp seems to be that the 31-year-old will wear his nation's shirt again.

Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi was recently asked if he believes Messi will make a comeback, and the forward insisted that he simply has to.   

"Messi has to return to the national team," he told Sport.

"In 2019, we have the Copa America."

Messi is Argentina's record goalscorer with 65 goals in 128 matches, while he has also assisted a further 42 strikes.
