Lionel MESSI will miss next month’s World Cup Qualifiers.
Not a sight football fans (more specifically Barcelona and Argentina fans) like to see. Lionel MESSI being substituted off due to injury. On Wednesday as Barcelona played against Atletico Madrid, Lionel MESSI pulled out with what appeared to be a groin injury, the same one which kept him out for Argentina against Venezuela earlier in the month.
A report by FC Barcelona confirms that MESSI has a groin strain in his right leg and he will be out for around 3 weeks. Argentina’s next match is early next month, on October 6 when they visit Peru. After that, comes the home match against Paraguay on Tuesday, October 11 in Buenos Aires.
No word yet on whether or not Edgardo BAUZA will call-up a replacement.
