The FIFA World Cup is right around the corner, and national teams are beginning to have warm-up friendlies, including Lionel Messi and Argentina.
Argentina will be in the United States for friendlies against Honduras and Jamaica as they prepare for what’s likely Messi’s last World Cup for the South American country.
Manager Lionel Scaloni has put a preliminary list for the two upcoming friendlies in North America as the Argentine tactician makes a final analysis on the possible group he’ll take to Qatar.

In his second season with Paris Saint-Germain, Messi has hit the ground running, occupying the role of the playmaker for the French giants. Additionally, the 35-year-old has found the back of the net more often in 2022-23.
Messi expects that his excellent start to the season is a prelude to what will occur in Qatar as the Argentine attempts to win the trophy that has long eluded him in his professional football career.
