Messi Left Out Argentina Squad Against Brazil, Once Again

Argentina will be playing against Brazil in October and they have once again left out their super star, Lionel Messi. Argentina faced humilliation in the World Cup 2018 when they got eliminated in the round of 16. It was a major disaster for the team that was supposed to be one of the favorites to win the World Cup. Since then, Messi has not been a part of the Argentina squad.

Messi has previously missed out the friendly match against Guatemala which Argentina won 3 – 0 and the friendly match against Colombia that ended in 0 – 0 draw.

Argentina will be playing against Iraq and Brazil in Saudi Arabia in the coming days. The interim coach Lionel Scaloni has recalled Nicolas Otamendi of Manchester City, to the Argentina Squad for the friendlies.

As per Scaloni, Messi is fine with the decision and this has been done with his consent. Messi is not the only super star who has not been included in the squad. Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain, and Angel Di Maria will also miss out on the friendlies.

Argentina are probably trying to rebuild their team for future and bring in new talent in order to lay a foundation for the team of 2022 World Cup and beyond. It is too early to say if Messi would be a part of the 2022 World Cup team or not. However, one thing is for sure, that Messi still has a lot to give to Argentina and we will surely be seeing more of him in the coming International tournaments.
