Alert in Argentina: Lionel Messi is the great doubt of the Albiceleste team for the game this Sunday, October 10, against Uruguay, in the Conmebol Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Messi could become the great casualty of the day in South America, if it is confirmed that his annoyance takes him out of the Río de La Plata classic. TNT Sports reported that Lionel Messi, the Albiceleste captain, has a discomfort in his left knee that puts him in doubt to face Uruguay.

In the match with Paraguay at the Defensores del Chaco, which ended in a 0-0 draw, the game was interrupted and at times the man from Rosario was seen with gestures of pain on his face. We will have to wait for the next few hours to know the evolution of a footballer who is not usually absent frequently.

For now, there are two bright names that are missing Sunday in the South American qualifiers: Uruguayan defender José María Giménez, who plays in Atlético de Madrid, will not play against Argentina due to injury; while Juan Guillermo Cuadrado (Juventus), will not be in the match between Colombia against Brazil, for accumulating yellow cards and being suspended.

Messi has not been in his best shape due to discomfort in his knee. Argentina waits for its evolution and could reserve it against Uruguay, to have it full in the game on Thursday, October 14, against Peru.
