Lionel Messi is reportedly taking an indefinite break from international football. At a press conference, Argentina interim coach Lionel Scaloni reiterated that no one would sport the precious number 10 shirt until Messi confirms his future plans. “Our idea is to assemble a team so that if one day he returns, he will feel comfortable,” he added. Argentina interim coach Lionel Scaloni faced the media before his team takes on Colombia on Tuesday for the International Friendly match at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. When asked about the absence of Lionel Messi Scaloni answered, “It’s obvious that when the best player in the world is not on the field, the team loses something.” (HT Correspondent )
