A Messi-less Argentina national team held a training session on Wednesday in Los Angeles, one day ahead of their friendly game against Chile.

Goalkeeper Franco Armani trained with the rest of the team despite not being able to play the game due to a muscle strain.

Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni warned his side against complacency against "a difficult and complicated rival" in Chile, promising a "classic".

As for Diego Maradona's rumoured return to management, Scaloni hoped that "he has the opportunity to direct and to come back to Argentinian football."

FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi is set to miss the game after being suspended by the CONMEBOL from international matches with the national team for three months for accusing the body of corruption.
