Argentina might feel one step close to the world cup trophy, but reports indicate that the country’s talisman Lionel Messi might be forced to miss the final match of the 2022 edition of the competition in Qatar.

It was reported that Lionel Messi was absent from the training held today, Thursday, December 15, 2022, due to discomfort he was feeling in the hamstring of his left leg.

Messi was seen clutching his left hamstring during the semifinal fixture against Croatia at the world cup. Many would be hopeful the star and the legendary player does not miss the finals of the competition.

France, on the other hand, has received a huge boost after it was reported that Karim Benzema might be available for the finals.
