Lionel Messi missed training on Friday morning. It wasn’t that the Argentina star was suffering from an injury, though that might well have been the case were he not fortunate enough to escape unharmed from a dodgy pitch in Texas.

Messi was absent so he could be with his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo, for the birth of their second child.

Ahead of an official announcement, Messi’s brother tweeted in Spanish that the child’s name was Mateo.
