Lionel Messi was absent from Argentina’s training session ahead of the FIFA World Cup, 2022. The megastar striker is supposed to play his last World Cup match on Sunday.
Notably, the FIFA World Cup 2022 final is likely to take place between the 2 giant football sporting nations, Argentina and France. The stakes are high for Argentina from the star striker Lionel Messi, who has been in an exceptional form throughout the World Cup.
Messi has scored 5 goals and also played huge roles in 3 others in his total 6 appearances in this World Cup. Putting up a brilliant display of his class, he has scored in all the 3 knock out matches played by Argentina.
According to a report by Argentine sports newspaper Ole, within 15 minutes, when media was allowed to visit Argentina’s training camp, Messi was not spotted in the session.
Notably, the star striker was seen suffering from a hamstring in the semifinal against Croatia. This sparked off the fear of a possible injury that might affect his participation in the Final.
He is believed to have been undergoing training in the gym alongside Rodrigo De Paul and Emiliano Martinez and his participation in the World Cup final is not a concern. Lionel Messi will be seen for the very last time in Argentina’s jersey against the grand final against France.
