Lionel Messi to Miss Argentina Friendlies Due to Hamstring Injury: Latest Updates

The Argentine national team announced on Monday that Lionel Messi will miss two upcoming friendlies due to a lingering right hamstring injury. Messi, who was expected to play in matches against El Salvador and Costa Rica later this month, sustained the injury during a recent match with his club team, Inter Miami CF.

The team stated on social media that Messi’s injury is minor but will prevent him from joining his national teammates in the USA for the friendly matches. This news comes as a blow to Argentina, who will now have to prepare for the Copa America 2024 without their star player.

Messi’s club coach, Tata Martino, expressed his goal of having Messi ready for upcoming matches with Inter Miami, including the Concacaf Champions Cup quarterfinals. Martino emphasized the importance of not rushing Messi back to action and potentially risking further injury.

It remains uncertain whether Messi will stay in Miami or travel to be with the Argentina squad for the friendlies. With the defending Copa America and World Cup champion at risk of missing out on important matches, fans are left eager to see if Messi will recover in time for the upcoming tournaments.
