Due to the outbreak of the Corona virus and for health reasons, Argentine star Lionel Messi put his own plane to sculpt the behavior of his teammates in his country who play in Europe and participate in the South American qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The Barca captain accompanies Marcos Acuña, Lucas Ocampos (Seville), Paulo Dybala (Juventus), Nicholas Otamendi (Benfica) and Juan Foyth (Villarreal), who have been called by coach Lionel Scaloni to face Ecuador and Bolivia.

Messi bought a "Gulfstream V" plane at the end of 2018 for $ 15 million, with the number "10" written on its tail and the names of his wife and three children on the tray.
Messi usually uses his private plane for his family trips, and his father sometimes takes it on business trips.
