Friendlies: sick, Lionel Messi is doubtful for the last match of Argentina against Jamaica


Sparkling on Saturday against Honduras (3-0), the PSG player could miss Argentina's last friendly match against Jamaica on Tuesday

Lionel Messi is highly doubtful for Argentina's final test against Jamaica.

The PSG player has been suffering from a cold since Monday which could therefore deprive him of this friendly meeting in Harrison (New Jersey), which will take place overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday (2 a.m. French time).

According to Tyc Sports, Messi saw the onset of symptoms of a flu virus.

This Monday, during the last training session on the grounds of Inter Miami, the Parisian was spared and his workload was lightened.

However, he made the trip from Florida to New Jersey, where the meeting took place at Red Bull Arena in Harrison.

In case of absence, Lionel Messi will be replaced by Julian Alvarez, the Manchester City striker according to Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni.

On Saturday, in the first American test, Argentina, undefeated for 34 games, easily got rid of Honduras (3-0) with a Lionel Messi in great shape.

Two goals, a decisive action, a lot of energy: Lionel Messi had confirmed his excellent form two months before the World Cup.
