On the heels of its 2-0 win over Panama, the Argentina national team will return to action on Tuesday with an international friendly fixture against Curacao.
Messi starred in Argentina’s victory over Panama on Thursday. The Paris Saint-Germain forward scored a late free-kick goal and completed nine successful dribble attempts during the match.
As noted by TyC Sports, Argentina national team manager Lionel Scaloni could call on these 11 players to start against Curacao on Tuesday.
Martinez; Montiel, Romero, Otamendi, Acuna; DePaul, Fernandez, Mac Allister; Messi, Alvarez, Di Maria
Scaloni penciled in Manchester City forward Julian Alvarez and Juventus playmaker Angel Di Maria to tag along with Messi in Argentina’s attack in the win against Panama. Alvarez featured in just the first half of the contest, while Di Maria logged two shots and created one goal-scoring chance during his time on the pitch. The two talents could once again join Messi in Argentina’s 4-3-3 formation on Tuesday.
Overall, Messi is one goal away from reaching 100 goals in his international career with La Albiceleste.
