Messi and Mascherano reaches Moscow
Ahead of Argentina's friendly matches, Barcelona duo, Leo Messi and Javier Mascherano, arrived in Moscow, media reports said on Monday (Nov 6).
After the little magician's memorable hat-trick against Ecuador to take La Albiceleste through to the 2018 World Cup, Jorge Sampaoli's team will be fully focused on preparing as thoroughly as they can for next summer's event.
The South American's face Russia and Nigeria in the short International break, and it will give the team a chance to improve upon their recent form, with the side winning only once in their previous five competitive fixtures.
The friendly match between Russia and Argentina will take place at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium on Nov 11.
