Spain’s boss Lionel Scaloni said on Wednesday that Lionel Messi will be ready for their World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay and Brazil, even though he hasn’t played much.
Messi’s Inter Miami team didn’t make it to the MLS playoffs, and he hasn’t played in almost a month, in the middle of the season.
“Messi is okay, he’s just fine. The player has only played one game in the last 25 days, but Scaloni told a news gathering on Wednesday that he was “fit and good.”
On Friday at 6 a.m. Bangladesh Time, Argentina plays Uruguay. The next week, on Wednesday at 6:30 a.m. Bangladesh Time, they play Brazil.
Eight times on record The Ballon d’Or winner Messi played his last game for Inter Miami on October 21. The team didn’t make the MLS playoffs even though they won the League Cup in August.
Late last month, Messi scored two goals to help Argentina beat Peru 2-0.
The fact that Scaloni was going up against Marcelo Bielsa, who used to coach Argentina and is now in charge of Uruguay, made him very excited.
“Everyone who has been coached by him is marked.” “It makes me happy to be able to face him and greet him,” he said.
Since they won all four of their games, Argentina is in first place in their South American qualifying group with 12 points. With seven points, Uruguay is in second place, tied with Brazil for third and Venezuela for fourth.
“This team has already proven that it can play against any opponent…” “We will do our best, and we are ready to compete,” he said.
