Lionel Messi Returns to Argentina Squad for Copa América Preparation

Posted : 04 June 2024

Lionel Messi has rejoined Argentina's national squad as they gear up for the upcoming Copa América tournament. The Inter Miami forward participated in his first training session with the Albiceleste on Monday afternoon at his club's training complex in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Messi, 36, was sidelined during Argentina's previous international friendlies in March due to a hamstring issue but has since recovered.


Despite the setback, Messi has been in fine form for Inter Miami, scoring his 12th league goal of the season in a recent draw with St. Louis City. With nine assists in 12 league appearances, he has been instrumental in keeping Inter Miami at the top of the Eastern Conference standings, demonstrating his continued prowess on the field.


Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni praised Messi's consistency and recovery from injury, emphasizing the importance of his participation following his rehabilitation. As Argentina prepares for friendlies against Ecuador and Guatemala, Scaloni faces the task of narrowing down his 29-man squad to 26 players by June 12. Argentina will commence their Copa América title defense on June 20 against Canada, with challenging fixtures against Chile and Peru in Group A.
