Argentina fans are concerned after their Talisman, Lionel Messi, missed training ahead of the World Cup final due to hamstring injuries.

It has been reported that Lionel Messi may not be fit enough to play in Argentina’s World Cup final against France on Sunday afternoon.

Remember that the 35-year-old PSG superstar was seen clutching his hamstring during Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Croatia, and those concerns will only grow now that Lionel Scaloni has given Messi time off ahead of the France match.

However, the Albiceleste manager also rested the rest of the starting XI that faced Croatia.

Messi has been experiencing hamstring pain, according to Foot Mercato. It will, however, take more than that to prevent the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner from appearing in the World Cup final.

Much of the nation’s hopes are riding on the forward, who has been in spectacular form throughout the winter tournament in Qatar. Messi is in contention for the Golden Boot after scoring five goals, the same as Kylian Mbappe for France.

Argentina’s hopes are heavily reliant on Messi, but the team also has several attacking options, including Paulo Dybala, Angel di Maria, Lautaro Martinez, and Julian Alvarez, who scored two goals in the World Cup semi-final against Croatia.
