Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez To India

Lionel Messi and his Argentina team mates will travel to India later this year to take on Venezuela in a friendly designed to boost football on the subcontinent.
The FIFA-sanctioned game is scheduled for September 2 in the eastern city of Kolkata and the Argentinian squad will then travel to Bangladesh where they will take on Nigeria, the Press Trust of India (PTI) newsagency reported.

"The Argentina Football Association has indeed signed a contract to bring in the full-strength squad including Messi and Carlos Tevez among others," Bhaskar Goswami of the Celebrity Management Group was quoted as saying by PTI.
"The contract guarantees their participation."
The Argentina squad will land in Kolkata on August 30 and will take part in a number of events, including a charity programme.
It was undecided if world player of the year Messi, whose club side Barcelona begin their La Liga title defence the day before, would fly out with his Argentina team mates or join the tour later.
After the Kolkata outing, the Argentine group will travel to Dhaka for another friendly against Nigeria on September 6, the report said.
