Club World Cup: Messi returns to training a day before final

Club World Cup: Messi returns to training a day before final

Lionel Messi, who suffered renal colic on Thursday that prevented him from playing the Club World Cup semifinal against Guangzhou (3-0), trained with his teammates Saturday, 24 hours before the final against River Plate.

In the International Stadium in Yokohama, Messi was seen together with Neymar practicing with the ball.

Messi's participation in the final was a mystery after Barcelona didn't report for 48 hours on how the player was doing, after an initial statement about his abdominal pain.

Just before practice, his coach Luis Enrique did not say if Messi will play.

The final of the Club World Cup will be between Barcelona and River Plate on Sunday at 10:30 GMT.
