After going back on his decision to retire from international football, Lionel Messi could be fit to return for Argentina without missing a game despite a hamstring problem.

Messi called time on his international career after the penalty shoot-out loss to Chile in the Copa America Centenario final in June, the fourth time he was a beaten finalist with the national team.

The 29-year-old was a doubt for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay and Venezuela after sustaining the injury during Sunday's 1-0 LaLiga victory over Athletic Bilbao.

However, Messi trained with his international team-mates on Tuesday ahead of Saturday's game against Uruguay, who lead the CONMEBOL standings.
