Lionel Messi and Argentina are due at Watford's London Colney training facility later this month, ahead of their 'Finalissima' match against Italy.

The two nations are going head-to-head at Wembley on Wednesday, June 1 as the respective winners of the Copa America and Euro 2020.

The Watford Observer understands that the Argentina squad will also be staying at The Grove in Watford, where they are expected to arrive a few days ahead of the match.

Messi and his teammates will then have access to the Hornets' training facilities to prepare for the final.

Tickets for the showdown at Wembley have sold out since the match was announced at the end of last year.
