The match ended with Argentina securing a 1-0 victory at Maracana Stadium, Rio de Janeiro, on Wednesday (22/11) morning WIB.

Messi received treatment on the sidelines during the first half. The Inter Miami player was eventually substituted in the 78th minute, with Angel Di Maria taking his place. Messi revealed feeling pain in his groin.

“I feel pain in my adductor muscle. This is my last match of the year, so I have time to recover and start 2024 by giving my all,” Messi stated, as reported by ESPN.

Despite not being able to play the full match, Messi expressed joy over Argentina’s victory. Albiceleste handed Brazil their first home defeat in the history of their participation in World Cup qualifiers.

“This team continues to make history. It’s enjoyable to win in Brazil, especially knowing historically they are strong at home,” Messi remarked.

Lionel Messi now has sufficient time to recover from his injury. The eight-time Ballon d’Or winner will only return to preseason training with Inter Miami in the second week of January 2024.
