Lionel Messi made a disappointing return to Argentina duty as he was injured in a 3-1 defeat by Venezuela.

Barcelona forward Messi missed six internationals during a self-imposed exile following defeat by eventual winners France at the 2018 World Cup.

Messi, 31, finished the match but felt pain in his groin and will sit out Tuesday’s friendly against Morocco.

The injury, described as a flare up of an existing problem, is not thought to be serious.
