Later this month, the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying fixtures will resume, and Paris Saint-Germain Lionel Messi doesn’t plan to miss this set of matches.
Despite already punching their ticket to Qatar, the 34-year-old wants to be there for the last home match and not miss the farewell with the people at Estadio Monumental.
Messi wasn’t called up in the last window of qualifying matches due to him recovering from his Covid-19 diagnosis. With Argentina already qualified, there was no need for him to be there.
Argentina will face Venezuela at home on March 25th, and then they will close out with their last game of the qualifying round when they travel to Ecuador on March 29th.
Should PSG advance past Real Madrid next week, the international window will close right before the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals start on April 5-6 and April 12-13.
