Messi a starter or on the bench? Scaloni spoke at a press conference

The first semi-final of the Copa America will be played this Tuesday. It will be between Argentina and Canada. In a press conference, the coach of the blue and white team spoke about the captain, Lionel Messi.



Argentina’s national team coach, Lionel Scaloni, announced today in a press conference that Lionel Messi “is fine” and that “he will be part of the match tomorrow” against Canada. He also denied that there were differences between the CONMEBOL and CONCACAF teams and invited a European team to play in the Copa América to prove that it does not have a different difficulty.

The current champion of America will face Canada tomorrow at 9pm for the Copa América semi-finals at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. The winner will play the final against Colombia or Uruguay, who will meet on Wednesday at the same time.


“Leo is fine, he finished well (with Ecuador) and tomorrow he will be part of the match, so we are calm”


“Leo is fine, he finished well (with Ecuador) and tomorrow he will be part of the match, so we are calm”Scaloni said. He also emphasized that “99% of the time Messi is ready to play” and added that “every time he has gone out on the field he has been.” “I am the one who decides. When I see him in condition to play, even if he is not 100%, he will play. I take responsibility for that and it will never weigh on me, because I know what he can give us even if he is not in optimal condition. I would not make the serious mistake of not putting him on the field.”
