Will Messi play in the final for Miami?
Inter Miami won the first title in their history by the hand of Lionel Messi. The Florida team became the champion by playing well in the Leagues Cup.
After Messi, Inter Miami reached the final of another tournament. Miami will face Houston Dynamo in the US Open Cup final on Thursday morning Bangladesh time.
However, before this match, there is some discomfort among Miami fans. The discomfort is again around Messi. This final game of Messi, who is under the pressure of injury and fatigue, is not yet certain. Earlier, coach Gerardo Tata Martino had said to wait for Messi until the last moment.
Messi's injury started in the World Cup qualifying match against Ecuador. On that day, the Argentine superstar left the field without finishing the entire match. He could not get into the field in the next match against Bolivia. After returning to Miami, he was also rested in the game against Atlanta. Then he left the field with discomfort in the 36th minute of the match against Toronto. At that time he looked quite tired and devastated. He could not play in the match against Orlando.
Now Messi is on the verge of winning another title. But not having Messi in this important final will be a big blow for Miami. There have been indications recently that Inter Miami is still a shaky team without him. So coach Martino has become desperate to play Messi.
Meanwhile, the Argentine media "TYC Sports" said that the Inter Miami authorities are optimistic about Messi playing in the final. But it is also true that even if Messi plays, he will not be 100% fit. All in all, Martino is under a lot of pressure. Even if you play Messi, you may not get his services for the full 90 minutes. It may even be seen on the bench at the beginning of the match. Later on the match situation will be taken into the field.
Earlier, Miami coach Martino said about Messi playing in the final, "Every day is different. I will talk to him, know how he feels. This decision is not easy to make. But I will wait before making the best decision.
