Huge injury scare for Argentina as Lionel Messi misses training

Posted by

Lionel Messi had to skip the training session with his team on Thursday as injury concerns grow. 

With just a couple of days until the World Cup final, this isn’t the news anybody wants to hear. 

Messi appeared to hurt his hamstring in Argentina’s 3-0 win against Croatia on Tuesday but played on as if nothing happened. Despite holding the back of his leg and hobbling in the first half, the 35-year-old played the full 90 minutes.

But it has now emerged via Foot Mercato, that Messi was forced to skip training because of this same hamstring issue. 

That injury didn’t seem to affect his game, as he feinted and dance around the Croatian defenders. Although this may just be a precaution it has gotten a lot of fans worried. 

What a disaster it would be if Messi was to miss the final due to injury, hopefully, it’s just rest that is needed. 

The PSG forward is currently leading the goalscoring charts in the tournament, he is tied with teammate and now rival Kylian Mbappe.

Argentina plays France on Sunday evening, let’s hope he is fit and firing.
