Injured Messi

Missing the A-match changed to ‘Hong Kong No Show’

Lionel Messi will miss the March A-match.

The Argentine Football Association announced on its official channel on the 19th (Korea time) that Messi will not be able to participate in the March A match due to a hamstring injury. Argentina is scheduled to face El Salvador in Philadelphia on March 22 and Costa Rica in Los Angeles on March 26.

Messi was injured during the Inter Miami match. He started the match against Nashville SC in the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions Cup round of 16, and scored one goal and one assist before being replaced early in the fifth minute of the second half. At the time, Miami coach Gerardo Martino said he had a bad right leg and explained the reason for his substitution. Messi missed the match against DC United on Thursday and ended up not being able to join the national 안전놀이터 team.

The two A-match games in March that Messi was excluded have changed the schedule. Argentina was originally planning to tour China during the A-match period in March. It was preparing for a showdown with Nigeria in Hangzhou and Ivory Coast in Beijing, but the schedule was changed in the aftermath of Messi’s “no-show” in Hong Kong.

I couldn’t take the risk

Messi made a visit to Hong Kong as part of Miami’s pre-season tour last month. However, he was not able to play against the Hong Kong starting team in the end due to his physical condition. Martino asked for understanding, saying, “I couldn’t take the risk,” and Messi and his team expressed their apology, but Hong Kong fans who waited for him expressed strong anger. As Messi played in matches in Saudi Arabia and Japan before and after matches in Hong Kong, his anger grew even more.

Things have grown to the point that authorities related to 토토사이트 have also stepped up. The Hong Kong government demanded an explanation from the organizers for a problem with the government-funded event, and the refund process eventually proceeded. The Hangzhou Sports Bureau, where the Argentina national team’s friendly match will be held, then reported the cancellation of the friendly match between Argentina and Nigeria, saying, “We confirmed that the match could not be held for a reason that everyone knows,” and Argentina had to change its plan to play the A match in the United States in March.
