VARIOUS CAPTAIN LIONEL MESSI TRAINING WITH ARGENTINA SQUAD STORY: Argentina captain Lionel Messi trained on Monday (March 18) with the national squad for the first time since last year's World Cup in Russia at Real Madrid's training centre in Madrid.

The Barcelona star will play in at least one of Argentina's friendlies against Venezuela and Morocco this month, coach Lionel Scaloni said on March 7.

The Barcelona forward has not played for his country since their last-16 exit at the hands of eventual champions France, opting to take a sabbatical after what was a disappointing tournament for the five-times Ballon d'Or winner.

Messi is Argentina's leading goal scorer with 65 goals but he is often criticized for not reproducing his club form for the national side.
