Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain), the core of Argentina, was absent from training due to a hamstring injury토토. A red light was turned on in Argentina’s quest to win the World Cup.
On the 16th, the British media Express reported that “Messi was absent from training on Thursday (15th) due to a hamstring problem,” and that “concerns about playing in the final against France are rising.”
The Argentine national team did not reveal the exact reason, but foreign media analyzed that Messi needed to manage his condition, as he showed discomfort in his hamstring in the semifinal match against Croatia.
French media Foot Mercato also reported that “Messi felt uncomfortable in his left hamstring and could not start training.”
Messi, who was selected as the MVP in the semifinals earlier, said, “We have reached where we wanted to be,” and “It is the best moment for me. We’ve had a rough time, but tonight we got a chance to have a great experience.”
“I would like to say that the first game after the 26-match unbeaten run was a big blow to all of us,” he said. “We did not think we would lose against Saudi Arabia. It was a huge ordeal, but we proved how strong we are.”
Meanwhile, Argentina will meet France at midnight on the 19th in the final of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. There is a high possibility that this stage will be the last World Cup for Messi.
