The captain of the Argentine national team, Lionel Messitrained normally today in the closed practice that the team carried out for the debut in the Qatar World Cupnext Tuesday against Saudi Arabia. On the 10th he was available to lionel scaloni in practice, behind closed doors, of the Argentine team at the University of Qatar.
The Rosario star had caused concern since in practice on Saturday he was with the kinesiologist Luis García on one side of the field. The official account of the team published images of Messi along with the rest of his teammates on the penultimate day of work prior to the World Cup premiere. In the first he is seen smiling next to Alejandro “Papu” Gomez and in another, with the bib on, next to Rodrigo DePaul.
What is happening with Messi is not new. The skilful striker from Paris Saint will carry out a special routine to balance the workloads in a first phase that will have three games in eight days. So far Mac Allister has taken a certain advantage over Alejandro Papu Gómez and Julián Álvarez, the other options that Scaloni manages for that sector if he wants a team with more offensive characteristics.
Argentina will debut in group C of the World Cup next Tuesday at 7 against Saudi Arabia at the Lusail stadium, with capacity for 80,000 spectators.
