Messi to miss friendly against Germany for injury
Argentina football captain Lionel Messi will miss his side's friendly against world champions Germany Wednesday due to a groin strain, La Liga giants Barcelona confirmed Monday.
"Leo Messi will remain in Barcelona as a precaution due to a strain in his right adductor," Barca said in a statement on their website, reports Xinhua.
"Barca's No. 10 will miss the match for peace in Rome this evening and will also not be able to participate in the match between Germany and Argentina."
The World Cup final rematch offers Argentina a chance for revenge for their agonizing 1-0 extra time defeat to Germany in the Brazil World Cup final in July.
Messi suffered the injury in Barca's 1-0 win away to Villarreal Sunday and will also miss a charity match in Rome Monday.
