Lionel MESSI was substituted off due to injury.
Lionel MESSI had to be substituted off for Argentina in the second half.
MESSI received a knee to the left side of his back and is currently undergoing tests. We will update you once more information becomes available.
UPDATE: Test results show that MESSI has suffered a lumbar hematoma which almost resulted in a fracture. From what I can tell, very deep bruising. No time table set on how long he would be out for.
UPDATE 2: Vero BRUNATTI (who is very close with the players) has stated that MESSI’s injury is a painful one but not a serious one. According to her, he should take part in the first match at the Copa America.
