BARRANQUILLA, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Luis Muriel scored a first-half brace as Colombia made a winning start to their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign with a 3-0 win over Venezuela here on Friday.
Argentina has been one of the worst-affected countries by the virus with more than 856,000 positive cases and over 22,700 fatalities.
Barca coach Ronald Koeman made no secret of his wish to see the 19-year-old return to the Camp Nou, but Barcelona were unable to close a deal before the transfer window closed on Monday night.
But in a statement, the AFA said the 26-year-old did not travel with the Albiceleste squad to Bolivia and would continue to receive treatment in Buenos Aires.

"She started really well right away, and had really good length, and was serving great. So I struggled at the beginning. I felt like I'm also not playing too bad, but just so many easy points going away with serve and return situations," said Siegemund.
The two players exchanged serves in the first two of the second set, but after Kenin called for a medical timeout at 2-1 down, the battle was in Swiatek's dominance as she swept four consecutive games to wrap up the second set in just 31 minutes.
"Definitely eight years ago I was young, I was already won my Wimbledon title, and I was kind of favorite and played and I lost to Maria, which she won the tournament. So for me, that time was a lot of pressure on me, and even I didn't play like the best on clay," the two-time Grand Slam winner added.
Argentina have won in La Paz only once in the past 25 years, when they overcame La Verde 2-1 in March 2005. Enditem
"That's what I try to do here also in the national team: to push my intensity to the limit to achieve big things," the former Liverpool player said.
"First of all, we want to spread positive energy and fresh spirit to the players. Then, we will inform them about our expectations," he added.
