“World Cup Champion”. While you’re at it, do you want to win another gold medal? Messi raises possibility of competing in Paris Olympics

Lionel Messi (Inter Miami), the “God of Soccer” who has done it all, including lifting the World Cup trophy, can he win a second Olympic gold medal?

“Argentina U-23 coach Javier Mascherano wants Messi and Angel Di Maria (Benfica) to join him at the Paris 2024 Olympics,” Spanish media outlets Marca and As reported today.카지노사이트

Mascherano, who played alongside Messi at FC Barcelona (Spain) during his playing days, said he would like to see Messi and Di Maria as a wildcard for the Paris Olympics to win gold.

Messi and Di Maria shared the joys of winning the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the 2021 Copa America and the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

At the Olympics, the men’s team must be composed of players aged 23 and under, with wildcard spots available for up to three players. Mascherano is hoping that Messi, who won gold at the Beijing Olympics, can repeat the feat on the Olympic stage.

If Messi is selected as a wildcard for Argentina’s Olympic team, he could face off against the next soccer emperor, Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain). Mbappe has also expressed his desire to play as a wildcard and win a gold medal since the Olympics are being held in his home country.

However, it will be important to see if Messi’s fitness holds up as he enters his twilight years. Marca expressed concern that the Olympics and Copa America in the same year would put Messi on a heavy schedule.
