Messi could take part in the final match of the US Open Cup

MOSCOW, September 26 – RIA Novosti. According to France Presse, head coach Gerardo Martino said that Inter Miami’s Argentinian striker Lionel Messi has the chance to play against Dynamo Houston in the US Open Cup final match.

Messi can add another trophy to his collection in Wednesday’s match. The Argentinian had previously celebrated the League Cup victory with the North American club.

“If there was no trophy, we would not even consider Messi in this match. If it was any other match, we would not take this risk. We will wait until Wednesday, we will wait until the last minute to make a decision,” Martino said.

In early September, Messi missed Argentina’s World Cup qualifying round match against Bolivia in the mountains of La Paz (3:0), and was substituted in the 89th minute in the previous match against Ecuador (1:0). Since then he has played just once for Inter Miami; In a North American Major League Soccer (MLS) regular season match against Toronto, however, he requested a substitution in the 37th minute and left the field due to muscle fatigue.

Messi was transferred to Inter Miami in the summer of 2023. The Argentinian graduated from Spanish Barcelona, ​​where he was a ten-time Spanish champion and four-time Champions League winner. In 2021, he transferred to France Paris Saint-Germain, with whom he won the national championship twice and the French Super Cup once. As part of the Argentine national team, Messi became world champion and winner of the America’s Cup. The Argentine player won the Ballon d’Or award seven times.
