Messi will travel with Argentina but may not play in the World Cup qualifying match against Bolivia

(AP) BUENOS AIRES — Although Lionel Messi will travel to Bolivia with the Argentina team on Tuesday for its South American World Cup qualifier, it is still unclear whether he will play.

Lionel Scaloni, the coach of Argentina, stated that he intends to decide whether to play Inter Miami star on Monday.


Messi’s goal gave the world champions a 1-0 victory over Ecuador to start their qualification campaign. Argentina’s 36-year-old captain scored on a free kick.

At a press conference on Sunday, Scaloni declared that Messi could go. He left open the possibility of deciding the striker’s appearance in La Paz on the day of the game.

Leo requested a replacement since he was exhausted the other day, according to Scaloni. But talking to him before games is not necessary. We follow developments.
