Lionel Messi’s injury fears continue as Argentina’s coach reveals discomfort playing at high altitude.

Argentina’s star player Lionel Messi’s injury fears continue as the Inter Miami star “did not feel comfortable” playing in Bolivia. The coach of the team, Lionel Scaloni, revealed that it was difficult for the 36-year-old star to play at an altitude of 3,600 meters above sea level[6].

Messi had tried to recover after playing 89 minutes against Ecuador, but he was unable to play in the match against Bolivia. Argentina beat Bolivia 3-0 to go top of CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying[6].

Playing at high altitude can be challenging for athletes, and it is not uncommon for them to experience discomfort or even injury. The lack of oxygen at high altitude can cause fatigue, shortness of breath, and other symptoms that can affect performance.

Messi’s injury fears are a concern for Argentina, who are hoping to qualify for the World Cup. The team has been performing well in the qualifiers, and Messi has been a key player in their success.

The Inter Miami star’s discomfort playing at high altitude is not surprising, given that he is used to playing at sea level. However, it remains to be seen how this will affect his future performances for Argentina.
