Lionel Messi has been in the U.S. for a while since joining Inter Miami last summer. While Messi is already here in the United States, the rest of his Argentina national teammates will come here to play two friendlies in March. Argentina will not be playing in Miami, where Messi normally plays. Argentina will play two nations that are not from South America; a different test for the World Champions.
