Argentina rumored eleven, Lionel Messi, Alejandro Papu Gomez


Lionel Messi is rumored to start for Argentina with Alejandro Papu Gomez also having a chance in the World Cup qualifiers.

Messi will play for Argentina but it remains to be seen if he will play from the start against Uruguay or if coach Lionel Scaloni would bring him on as a substitute. Per a report by TyC Sports, if Messi does not start against Uruguay, it would be Paulo Dybala or Alejandro Papu Gomez starting in his place.

According to the report by TyC Sports, Joaquin Correa, Angel Correa and Julian Alvarez also have chances of starting the match.

In addition, Guido Rodriguez is expected to start in place of Leandro Paredes. Here is the rumored eleven:

Emiliano Martinez; Nahuel Molina, Cristian Romero, Nicolas Otamendi, Marcos Acuna; Rodrigo De Paul, Guido Rodriguez, Gio Lo Celso; Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martinez, Angel Di Maria


  1. The team and Scaloni should be tested without Messi. They have done good without Messi against Mexico, Germany and Ecuador. Let them get tested against this Uruguay side which would be eager for revenge. Messi can start fresh against Brazil. Want to see Dybala taking up some responsibility to lead the team on pitch like sometimes he does for Juventus.
