Lionel Messi Trains In Argentina As They Prepare For World Cup

Lionel Messi stretches as Argentina train in Ezeiza, Buenos Aires, ahead of the World Cup

Lionel Messi was once again the main attraction as Argentina continued to train for the World Cup in their native capital of Buenos Aires. 

The South American side went through the motions under the watchful eye of head coach Jorge Sampaoli with PSG star Angel Di Maria and Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain also refining their skills.

The trio of Messi, Di Maria and Higuain all arrived on the back of lifting domestic titles with Barcelona, PSG and Juventus respectively, and they will be hoping to take that winning mentality with them to Russia.

Having come so close to winning football’s biggest prize four years ago, Argentina head to this summer’s World Cup as one of the favourites.

In heartbreaking circumstances, Messi missed out on his first major international trophy thanks to Germany’s extra-time winner from Mario Gotze.

Gotze is not part of the Joachim Low’s Germany squad for this World Cup, but the defending champions still looked littered with fantastic footballers as they continued their own preparations in Eppan, Italy.
