Messi will play against Ecuador after overcoming fears


This year’s Copa America will begin in the United States from June 20. Argentina will enter the field in the opening match. The Albicelesta will play against Ecuador tomorrow in a friendly match ahead of that match

There was some apprehension about Messi’s game due to the friendly match. However, coach Scaloni has given assurances about Messi’s field after overcoming all fears. La Pulga will be seen playing against Ecuador.

In the pre-match press conference, Scaloni said, ‘People will see Messi in this match. He will definitely play, if only for a few minutes. We have to take this into account carefully so that everyone gets a chance to play.’

However, Scaloni did not guarantee how long Messi will play. Before landing in Chicago, the World Cup-winning coach said, ‘I believe Messi will play but not sure if he will play for 30 minutes or 60 minutes. But the most important thing is that he will enter the field in this match.

Messi played for Argentina for the last time on October 12, 2023. In that match they won 1-0 against Paraguay.
