Lionel Messi not expected to be called for Argentina national team


Lionel Messi is not expected to be called to the Argentina national team.

Messi is expected to remain with PSG and miss Argentina’s two World Cup qualifying matches in January and February. According to TyC Sports and TN Deportes, coach Lionel Scaloni will not select Messi as the Argentine looks to regain his full fitness.

Argentina play Chile on January 27 away from home and Colombia on February 1 at home in the World Cup qualifiers. The Copa America champions are already qualified for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.


    • Who cares about the you-have-to-be-a-european-to-win-this-shitty FIFA best player. It is just a new award, worth much less than the original Ballon D’or. If Ballon D’or is like the World Cup. FIFA award is like the confederation cup winner.

      100% a tier 2 award. Chinese copy of Ballon D’or.

      • Yes I thought it was a unique goal. I think the Patrick Schick goal was a bit overrated (I’ve seen several of those types of goals in the past not get that much hype such as how nobody is talking about the similar Angel Correa goal a week ago) and the Taremi goal was beautiful but again many overhead kicks have gotten a lot of attention in the past. I am happy for an Argentina to win the award as you are
