Messi was certainly the star name for the friendly in Krasnodar, but the Barcelona maverick has returned to his club after the victory against Russia.

According to Argentina’s official Twitter account (h/t Tom Webber of Goal), the forward opted to leave preparations with his country, and it has been confirmed the player is not suffering with injury.

Messi linked with Sergio Aguero to capture a late 1-0 victory against the Russians, with Argentina dominating possession as they battled for territory.

Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli was delighted with the performance at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, lauding his attack after the match.
