Messi Scores On Return To Argentina National Team

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi struck the only goal of the game as 10-man Argentina secured a 1-0 win over rivals Uruguay in World Cup qualifying on Thursday.

Just over two months after retiring from international football, a decision he later reversed, Messi was the hero for Argentina in Mendoza.

The strike – which deflected off Uruguay defender Jose Maria Gimenez – was enough to separate the two sides in Edgardo Bauza’s first game in charge.

The win sends Argentina above Uruguay and to the top of the qualification standings after seven games.
