Messi to Play in Copa America Semifinal Despite Leg Injury

    Lionel Messi to play in Argentina's Copa America semifinal against Canada despite a leg injury, aiming to break goal records and lead his team to victory.

    A leg injury won’t stop Lionel Messi from playing in Argentina’s Copa America semifinal on Tuesday night against Canada. Since the team’s victory over Chile on June 25 in the group stage, Messi has been battling a right leg issue. Although he was not present for the first-round match four days later, he participated in the full match during last Thursday’s quarterfinal triumph over Ecuador.

    Messi’s Record Chase

    Leo is competent. At MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Monday, Albiceleste coach Lionel Scaloni announced that his player would be playing tomorrow. At 37, Messi is four goals short of the record held by Brazil’s Zizinho and Argentina’s Norberto Méndez with 13 Copa America goals, although he hasn’t scored in any of the competitions this year.

    Scaloni declared, “It’s an easy decision for me.” “I ask him how he feels, and it’s a really honest decision. The final thirty minutes will be played if he responds, “I’m not good.” He will play when he is free.

    Jesse Marsch’s Take on Messi

    In the opening match of the tournament on June 20, Argentina defeated Canada 2-0 with goals from Julián Álvarez and Lautaro Martínez, setting up Messi’s team to pursue a record 16th Copa America championship.

    “With Messi, we weren’t quite good enough in the final game. Jesse Marsch, the American coach appointed to lead Canada in May, remarked, “He was able to run free at our goalkeeper too much.” “He’s the best player to ever play the game, as we all know.”


    Despite suffering a leg injury, Lionel Messi’s will to participate in the Copa America semifinal versus Canada demonstrates his unwavering dedication to Argentina’s triumph. Lionel Scaloni, the coach, has faith in Messi’s ability to execute, which highlights the reciprocal respect that exists between the two. Messi’s continued skill and love for the game are demonstrated by his presence on the field, as he gets closer to shattering the Copa America goal record.
