CdM 2022: Lionel Messi will not be called up with Argentina

Date:

As part of the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup, Argentina, already qualified, is preparing to cross swords with Chile, on January 27 in Calama, and Colombia, five days later, in Cordoba. A double confrontation in which however Lionel Messi (34 years old) will not take part. Indeed, according to the latest information from TyC Sports, Lionel Scaloni, coach of the Albiceleste, will not summon the Pulga for these two deadlines.

Recently affected by Covid-19 and after a year 2021 full of twists and turns, culminating in this resounding arrival at Paris Saint-Germain, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has not played with the capital club since 22 last December (Lorient, 1-1) and will therefore logically be preserved. If the Argentine media also reveals that the former Barcelona player would have liked to participate in these two international meetings, his long recovery finally tipped the balance. With this trip less, the Argentinian will be able to focus on his return with the Parisians, and this less than a month now from the long-awaited shock against Real Madrid in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
