The two Lionel decided it a couple of hours before, in a talk at the hotel located in the center of Montevideo. Messi and Scaloni spoke about it. In the end, the 10 albiceleste will be a substitute in Uruguay – Argentina that will start just at midnight on this Spanish Friday. In his place, Paulo Dybala will enter as the starter.
The news was known in the privacy of the National Team two hours before the game for the South American Qualifiers. Until then, everyone guaranteed that he would be the owner. But there was a conversation and a cautious decision was reached after the injury to his left leg (blow to the knee and muscle discomfort in the hamstring) that has prevented Leo from playing since October 29.
Messi had trained well since he arrived in Buenos Aires. Scaloni had said that if he continued like this he would play. It had not clarified whether from entry or from the bank. Now it is known that he will not be a starter. At what point will it enter? Or will Leo settle in Montevideo just by looking?
