After the loss of the Copa Final this summer, Lionel Messi decided he was going to retire from the Argentina National Team. Despite this, Messi is back in action, and trained with Argentina in a closed Tuesday practice.

With World Cup qualifiers right around the corner, Argentina sits in third behind Uruguay and Ecuador in South America’s Preliminary Competition. Messi is expected to play in the upcoming matches, and may qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
