The Argentinean ace will not feature in La Albiceleste's final match of 2017. The player will return to Barcelona shortly.

Lionel Messi will not take part in Argentina's final game of the year after leaving the team's camp in Russia following the team's 1-0 win against the 2018 World Cup hosts yesterday.

According to the Argentinean Football Federation, Messi will return to Barcelona shortly, which rules him out of the friendly match against Nigeria, set to take place on Tuesday.

The reasons to let Messi go are simple: coach Jorge Sampaoli wanted to grant his star some rest.

La Albiceleste's boss admitted that Messi needed to take some time off from the team's duties, especially because he plays games every four days.

Messi had a hand in yesterday's win against Russia, leading the way for La Albiceleste's goal, scored by Sergio Aguero.
