After their 1-0 win over Venezuela in a FIFA international friendly, Argentina paid homage to the Mother House, the headquarters of the Mother Teresa founded Missionaries of Charity, though their star striker Lionel Messi gave it a miss due to security concerns.

Later, the Argentine players led by Messi turned up for a full-fledged practice session at the Yuba Bharati Krirangan. They practiced for about 90 minutes in the evening with coach Alejandro Sabella.
