Messi Fit for Argentina’s World Cup Qualifiers


The anticipation surrounding Argentina’s crucial World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay and Brazil has been met with reassurance from coach Lionel Scaloni. Despite Lionel Messi’s recent lack of game time due to Inter Miami’s early elimination from the MLS playoffs, Scaloni confidently stated that Messi would be fit and ready for these pivotal matches.

The absence of competitive action hasn’t deterred Scaloni’s belief in Messi’s readiness. The Inter Miami forward has been out of action for almost a month in the middle of the season. However, Scaloni provided positive updates during a press conference, highlighting Messi’s fitness despite the limited recent play. “Messi is fine, he is doing well. Even though he’s played one game in the last 25 days, he’s been training normally, he’s fit and good,” stated Scaloni.

Argentina is set to face Uruguay first, followed by a match against Brazil just a few days later. Despite Messi’s reduced playing time, Scaloni expressed his unwavering confidence in the star player’s preparation and fitness for these critical fixtures.

The coach also expressed his enthusiasm about the forthcoming clash against his former mentor and Argentina’s current Uruguay coach, Marcelo Bielsa. This reunion adds an extra layer of intrigue to the matches, with Scaloni acknowledging the influence Bielsa had on those who were coached by him. He emphasized the satisfaction of facing Bielsa and exchanging greetings.

Argentina currently leads the South American qualifying group, holding a strong position with 12 points accumulated from four wins in four matches. This impressive run has shown the team’s resilience and capability to perform against formidable opponents. Scaloni highlighted the team’s readiness to rise to the occasion and their preparedness to compete, reinforcing the belief in their ability to face any challenge head-on.

Despite Messi’s last competitive appearance with Inter Miami on October 21, where his team failed to secure an MLS playoff spot after previously winning the Leagues Cup in August, his performance with Argentina remains a crucial aspect of the team’s strategy and aspirations.

As the team gears up for these critical matches, the confidence in Messi’s physical condition and preparedness underscores Argentina’s determination to secure victories and maintain their top spot in the group.
