But the red card did not change anything. Fans were still on the edge of their seat to see if Messi got injured. Thankfully, he did not, and he got back up on his feet and soldiered on to play the full 90 minutes for La Abiceleste. Below is a video of the tackle on Messi, Venezuela vs Argentina.

Argentina beat Venezuela despite red card tackle on Messi

Argentina ran out 3-1 winners on the day. Lautaro Martinez opened the scoring with a penalty in first-half added time. Joaquin Correa and Angel Correa then added two goals in the second half to make sure Argentina were never in danger of losing the game.

Venezuela got their goal but it was in the 94th minute and meant absolutely nothing. Lionel Messi did not score but that Messi did not get injured vs Venezuela is a win for football fans everywhere. Messi made his debut for PSG last week in a much-hyped game against Reims.

He will now return to France but not before he plays the last fixture for Argentina during this international break. They take on Bolivia on 10th September. Argentina are currently 2nd in the qualifiers table with 15 points from 7 games.

They only trail Brazil but by 6 points. Nevertheless, having Messi onboard means they would be favourites to easily progress from the group for Qatar.
