Messi is called to have decided to join Indonesia’s opponent

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —

Lionel Messi has reportedly decided to strengthen the Argentina national team in the Asian Tour against Australia and Indonesia on the June FIFA Matchday.

This news was revealed by Argentine media, El Destape, which claimed Messi had informed his decision to the Argentine coach, Lionel Scaloni, and the Argentine Football Federation (AFA).

“Lionel Messi has made a decision with the Argentina national team ahead of the friendlies against Australia and Indonesia in two FIFA Matchday matches. The captain, world champion in Qatar 2022, has already informed AFA and Lionel Scaloni about what he will do in the June 2023 match,” wrote El Destape.



The decision that Messi made was that the 35-year-old striker wanted to strengthen the Argentina national team against Australia and Indonesia. Argentina is scheduled to face Australia in Beijing, China, on June 15 and then face Indonesia in Jakarta on June 19.

Even though there were no crucial points contested by Team Tango in the two matches, Messi still wants to strengthen the Argentina national team on this FIFA Matchday. In addition, it is claimed that Scaloni will bring the best team on the Asian Tour, except for Lisandro Martinez, who is confirmed to be absent due to injury.

“The PSG striker (Messi) has already informed that he will be present in the two matches (against Australia and Indonesia) despite the fact that there are no points at stake.”

“In addition, La Scaloneta will come with almost full strength, except for Lisandro Martinez who suffered an injury with Manchester United. Young player Alejandro Garnacho will also return to the national team,” wrote El Destape.

This news is a breath of fresh air for Lionel Messi fans in Indonesia. Previously, PSSI Chairman Erick Thohir also believed that the Argentina national team would bring the best team against Indonesia, although he could not confirm Messi’s arrival.

Erick also confirmed that PSSI would announce ticket prices for Indonesia vs Argentina on Monday (29/5).
