Will Messi play for Argentina against Saudi Arabia? When Argentina plays Saudi Arabia in their opening encounter of the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, Lionel Messi is anticipated to start. One of the early favorites for the FIFA World Cup is the two-time world winner. Messi’s availability for the match against Saudi Arabia has been questioned.

Messi missed a portion of open training with the rest of the team due to a slight injury, according to a previous source. He did, however, work out specifically for this game and is anticipated to be OK. Lionel Messi would probably direct Albiceleste’s offense if he were to start for Argentina. He might attack in a front three with Lautaro Martinez, Angel Di Maria, and other players.

From FIFA World Cup Group D, Argentina is predicted to advance. They were placed next to Mexico, Poland, and aforementioned Saudi Arabia. Lionel Messi may have one more opportunity to help his country win international football’s top prize at the current World Cup. Before the start of the World Cup, he performed admirably against the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward scored one goal and provided one assist in Argentina’s 5-0 triumph over UAE.

Prior to the FIFA World Cup in 2022, Argentina depends on Messi’s performance. Before the championship match in Qatar, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner had been in excellent form for his club team PSG. Before the World Cup’s hiatus in club football, Messi was one of PSG’s top players. The former FC Barcelona star went on to make just 19 appearances across all competitions while tallying 12 goals and 14 assists.

It’s fantastic that so many non-Argentines want Argentina to win the World Cup because of me, Messi stated. I appreciate it. Messi has also performed well for his country’s team. In a September international friendlies, the captain scored twice against Jamaica and two more goals against Honduras.

In his remarkable career, Lionel Messi has faced Saudi Arabia just once on the field. Back in 2012, the friendly went scoreless as the forward failed to contribute to a single goal. So to kick off their FIFA World Cup campaign, Messi will be eager to score his first goal against the Asian opposition.
