Lionel Messi and Wag Antonela enjoy another party to celebrate Argentina’s World Cup triumph as PSG edge win without him | The Sun

LIONEL MESSI enjoyed his latest party as he continues his post-World Cup break.

The Argentine hero is in hometown Rosario still basking in his glory.



Messi's club Paris Saint-Germain returned to action this week, but the 35-year-old is still on an extended break.

He initially travelled to Buenos Aires from Qatar with his team-mates immediately after their triumph, before heading to Rosario a day later.

The attacker has been spending plenty of time with wife Antonela, as well as parents Jorge and Celia.

All were present as Messi hosted another post-World Cup bash last night.

But others were at Messi's bash, including his former PSG pals Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes.

Di Maria, 34, and wife Jorgelina Cardoso posed with Messi's parents for a snap together.

While Paredes attended with wife Camila Galante.

Former Argentina stars Maxi Rodriguez and Javier Mascherano are also said to have been in attendance.

Di Maria and Paredes are set to return to Juventus on January 2.

While Messi is due back in Paris on Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

Christophe Galtier's side were back in action without him on Wednesday night against Strasbourg at Parc des Princes.

While Messi was missing, fellow World Cup finalist Kylian Mbappe was back and in the starting XI.

The match began in straightforward enough fashion, with Marquinhos heading home a 14th minute set piece to give his side the lead.

He went from hero to villain in the second-half, however, when he deflected Ludovic Ajorque's cross beyond Gianluigi Donnarumma and into his own net for the visitors' shock equaliser.

PSG were given another scare just after the hour mark, when Neymar was sent off for a second yellow card after a theatrical dive.

They managed to find a winner deep into stoppage time, however, when Mbappe tucked away a 96th minute penalty after being fouled in the box.

The win saw PSG move seven points clear of second-place Lens at the top of the Ligue 1 table, with a trip to face their title rivals scheduled for Sunday.
