As a result, Messi was injured during Inter Miami’s game against Nashville, last Wednesday. On that occasion, he scored one of the goals in the 3-1 victory at Concachampions and was substituted at the beginning of the second half.

Lionel Scaloni did not announce a replacement on the list. The coach had already lost Palacios, Bayer Leverkusen midfielder, and Dybala, Roma striker, from the initial squad.
