Paulo Dybala to miss Argentina matches in March due to injury


Paulo Dybala will miss Argentina’s two friendly matches in March due to an injury.

Dybala is out of the two matches in the United States due to an injury to the adductor of the right thigh. The 30 year old missed Argentina’s last eight matches, most of which due to injury or fitness issues.

The Argentina national team will play two matches in March in the United States. The first is against El Salvador on March 22 in Philadelphia and the second against Costa Rica on March 26 in Los Angeles.

Here is the updated list of players for the two matches:

Franco Armani (River Plate)

Emiliano Martínez (Aston Villa)

Germán Pezzella (Real Betis)
Nehuén Pérez (Udinese)
Nicolás Otamendi (Benfica)
Cristian Romero (Tottenham Hotspur)
Nicolás Tagliafico (Lyon)
Nahuel Molina (Atletico Madrid)
Valentín Barco (Brighton)
Nicolás Valentini (Boca Juniors)

Ezequiel Palacios (Bayer Leverkusen)
Rodrigo De Paul (Atletico Madrid)
Leandro Paredes (AS Roma)
Alexis Mac Allister (Liverpool)
Enzo Fernández (Chelsea)
Giovani Lo Celso (Tottenham Hotspur)

Nicolás González (Fiorentina)

Facundo Buonanotte (Brighton)

Ángel Di María (Benfica)
Lionel Messi (Inter Miami)

  1. This pains me a lot. Every time a national team game comes up Dybala gets injured and cannot play. When he can play and does show up he doesn’t get picked. I wish he would retire from the national team so I don’t have to keep expecting him to play and getting disappointed over and over.

  2. This seems a bit manufactured. Minor injury, and conveniently only for the 10 days that would have been spent on International duty…

    Feels like he has given up on the national team due to lack of minutes. Why bother traveling all that way to sit on the bench?

  3. I waited for so long him to be the next messi next messi i lost that ever since cr arrived in juve and realised not many clubs intrested in him because of his fitness. He was like messi and angel a complete player who can score, dribble, assist, PK, FK

  4. DYBALA is a gem for us. I hope he remains fit and fine for all the time. We are indeed indebted to him for his contribution in the WORLD CUP FINAL. That ball snatching from mbappe when all the PLAYERS of ours including ENZO, PAREDES AND CUTI got dribbled by mbappe still gives me goosebumps. Unlike LAUTARO MARTINEZ, With the limited time he got in the final he proved his worth. WHAT A PLAYER DYBALA HAS BEEN FOR US. LO CELSO, DYBALA AND PALACIOS ALL OF THEM ARE GREAT PLAYERS. I think all of them especially PALACIOS have improved their fitness levels. I think since DYBALA is injured SCALONI should call up some one between ANGEL CORREA AND FRANCO MASTANTUANO. Because right now FRANCO MASTANTUANO is probably the best young player who can be the substitute of PAULO DYBALA.

  5. Remember the serious injury Messi sustained in 2014, months before the WC when Tata let him go to ARG for rehab? It is hard to believe that was 10 years ago when he was only 26 and all the speculations about how much his body could take given his medical history.
    My point is, and speaking from a personal feeling, I always had my hand on my heart whenever he fell to the ground after a tackle, push or pull, nm when he was massaging the back of his leg in 2022WC but everything turned out to be fine.
    Everything that came after winning the WC is the cherry on top of the 1st cherry, mission accomplished already and whatever happens from now can’t and won’t change what already happened.
    Some players are not meant to play football long term, Dybala, Lo Celso, Gago and the list goes on.

  6. If he was even 20-30% more fitter then he would be challenging KDB for the best attacking player right now in Europe but he can’t stay fit for more than 4 games in a row and can only play 60 odd mins every match. He had to play almost full match against Fiorentina after playing 4 odds matches without a break because Roma were trailing and that must have caused the injury, since then hasn’t played a minute! Locelso, Palacios and Dybala , unfortunately can’t be part of our core group of players. If they are fit , they can be selected but that is it. Scaloni is going to have to again depend on Messi and Dimaria to hold the attacking front in COPA and once they are gone, we don’t have any player with that kind of X-factor.

  7. Dybala and Pastore – very talented- but unable to play – we fans will always pray for quick recovery and help build the next generation of players..
