Lionel Messi headlines Argentina squad for March World Cup qualifiers

Lionel Messi is arguably the best player in the world, but his role within his team has decreased this season.
Lionel Messi will once again lead Argentina’s squad for World Cup qualifiers.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi heads up the list of players called up by Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza for CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying matches on March 23 against Chile and March 28 against Bolivia.

The Argentina federation made the announcement on Friday and included Estudiantes’ Mariano Andujar and centre-back Marcos Acuna among the 26.

Messi will be joined by Javier Mascherano, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero and Angel Di Maria, but Inter captain Mauro Icardi did not make the cut, despite calls for his inclusion.
