Messi headlines as Argentina announce squad for World Cup qualifiers

Argentina have named Lionel Messi in their squad for three South American World Cup qualifiers in October. The Argentines are away to Paraguay on October 7 before hosting Uruguay three days later and wrapping up against Peru on October 14, also in Buenos Aires.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be played in Qatar between November 21 and December 18. The tournament will feature 32 teams.

Three Premier League players — Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez and Tottenham pair Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero — are in the Argentina squad even though the country is on Britain’s coronavirus travel red list.

Visitors from red-listed countries will have to undergo 10 days quarantine on the UK arrival.
