Lionel Messi’s Participation in Argentina’s World Cup Qualifier Against Paraguay Remains Uncertain

Argentina’s star, Lionel Messi, may be doubtful for their upcoming South American World Cup qualifier against Paraguay, despite displaying promise during training. Coach Lionel Scaloni expressed cautious optimism about Messi’s readiness.

Messi recently rejoined the national team after returning from injury, making a second-half appearance as a substitute for Inter Miami in Major League Soccer over the weekend. He has had limited playing time at his club, featuring for just 37 minutes since September 3 due to an injury sustained during international duty last month.

Scaloni emphasized the importance of another training session before making a final decision on Messi’s participation. He stated, “We still have one more training session, and it’s crucial for him. I have to discuss it with him and ensure that we are confident he can start. He looked good. Based on that, we will determine the rest of the team.” The uncertainty surrounding Messi’s role in the crucial qualifier adds an element of suspense to the upcoming match.
