Messi the one constant in a much-changed Argentina squad for Copa America

Lionel Messi is back in the side but Lionel Scaloni (right) has also called in a lot of new faces for the 2019 Copa America.

Lionel Messi remains very serious about winning a senior title with Argentina.

The quest will surely come to an end with the next World Cup in three years' time. Next year there is a Copa America on home ground -- the 2020 competition is being shared between Argentina and Colombia but even so, Messi has signed up for this year's edition, which kicks off next month in Brazil.

Argentina bizarrely go into the competition under an inexperienced caretaker coach, the former international right-back Lionel...

Messi leads Argentina's Copa America squad list

Ale Moreno respects Lionel Messi for sticking with the national side, even with the intense criticism he faces from Argentinian fans.

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi will lead Argentina's squad at the Copa America, with Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero back in the side for the first time since the 2018 World Cup.

Both were named on Tuesday in the country's 23-man squad for the tournament along with Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, who made the cut despite scoring only five goals in 30 league appearances this season.

Barcelona's Messi an 8/10 with brace to reach 50 goals once again

Two goals from Lionel Messi got him to 50 in all competitions for the sixth time in his career, but Barcelona ended the season with a draw at Eibar.

Lionel Messi scored twice as Spanish champions Barcelona ended the La Liga season with a 2-2 draw at Eibar on Sunday. Ernesto Valverde's side ended the campaign 11 clear of their nearest challengers, Atletico Madrid, in a season marred by a shocking Champions League exit to Liverpool in the semifinals that took some of the gloss off their runaway league title win.


There was nothing for either team to play for on the pitch, but Messi is still in a race for the European Golden Shoe. His...

Vidal 7/10, Messi 6/10 as Barca bounce back vs. Getafe

Shaka Hislop makes his picks on the penultimate week on the La Liga season and discusses whether Barcelona can lift the spirit of the club after midweek's disaster.

BARCELONA, Spain -- A goal from Arturo Vidal and an own goal were enough for Barcelona to beat Getafe 2-0 at Camp Nou on Sunday as the recovery process for their Champions League collapse at Liverpool began.

Vidal bundled home from close range in the first half and Lionel Messi forced what wound up being a late own goal for the second as the Spanish champions extended their lead at the top of the table to 11 points with just one game to go.


Ernesto Valverde said it was important to...

Barcelona transfer policy, not Messi to blame for Champions League failure - Alves

Former Barcelona player Dani Alves feels it might be time his old club moved on from their current passing game following another disastrous Champions League exit.
Lionel Messi's former teammate Dani Alves discusses the huge responsibility the Argentine currently has on his shoulders at Barcelona.

Dani Alves has questioned Barcelona's transfer policy and defended Lionel Messi in an interview with ESPN FC following his former side's Champions League elimination at the hands of Liverpool.

Under Pep Guardiola, Barca won two Champions League titles in three seasons with the core of their players coming from the famed La Masia academy. However, recently they have favoured expensive acquisitions over nurturing their own talent.

And Paris Saint-Germain defender Alves said he feels the club have...
