Lionel Messi Included in Barcelona Squad for Friendly vs. Mamelodi Sundowns

Lionel Messi Included in Barcelona Squad for Friendly vs. Mamelodi Sundowns

The event is one of the main highlights of the Nelson Mandela centenary celebrations taking place this year.

Sibusiso Vilakazi scored Sundowns' goal late on but Barca was in cruise control.

Valverde made multiple changes to his full-strength side at half-time before Lionel Messi came on for the final 15 minutes of the game.

"I am so happy with my boys because they always tried to play football the way I want them to - building from the back".

Barcelona got off to the flawless start thanks to Ousmane Dembele in the third minute.




Their unbeaten run was eventually ended following a 5-4 away loss to Levante in their penultimate league game of the season.

"We did make crucial defensive errors, but I took a lot of positives from this match, including our passing and how we dispossessed Barcelona at times".

La Liga's newly crowned champions then doubled their lead on the 19th-minute mark after Suarez was put through in on goal to calmly slot the ball past Sundowns keeper Denis Masinde Onyango to make it 2-0.

Barcelona will round off this season's LaLiga campaign with a home game against Real Sociedad on Sunday.

They were greeted by hundreds of fans as they made their way to their bus, with some fans chanting "Messi!"
