Football Prediction : Argentina’s roster for FIFA World Cup qualifiers is led by Lionel Messi.

Argentina’s roster for the next three South American FIFA World Cup qualifiers will be led by Lionel Messi, the Argentine Football Association said on Monday.

Despite missing Paris Saint-past Germain’s two matches due to a knee injury, the 34-year-old was picked to the Albiceleste’s 30-man squad.

Paulo Dybala, who left the ground in tears during Juventus’ 3-2 win over Sampdoria on Sunday with an apparent thigh injury, was also named by manager Lionel Scaloni.

Meanwhile, Scaloni summoned up Lucas Alario of Bayer Leverkusen and Esteban Andrada of Monterrey.

Argentina will play Paraguay on October 7 in Asuncion before hosting Uruguay and Peru in Buenos Aires on October 10 and 14.

Scaloni’s men are presently second in the 10-team South American group, trailing only Brazil, with five victories and three draws from eight games.

The top four teams will be guaranteed a place in next year’s World Cup in Qatar, while the fifth-ranked team will compete in an intercontinental playoff.
