After Ban, Lionel Messi Is Back on Team Argentina

With his three-month international soccer ban ending, the 32-year-old Argentine superstar will return to play for his national team in two games later this month. Messi earned the suspension, which lasted four games, by alleging official corruption at the Copa America tournament in Brazil this summer. But during his national prohibition, he has continued playing for FC Barcelona.

Who’s Argentina up against? The squad will face Brazil and Uruguay on Nov. 15 and Nov. 18, respectively, in exhibition matches that’ll take place in Saudi Arabia and Israel.
