Lionel Messi is set to start for Argentina in their crucial Copa America quarter-final match against Ecuador on Thursday. According to Gastón Edul, Messi will be included in the starting eleven for Lionel Scaloni’s team. Scaloni, who was suspended for Argentina’s 2-0 victory against Peru, had rested Messi for that match, ensuring the star player is fresh and ready for the knockout stages. This decision highlights the strategic importance of having Messi in optimal condition for the critical phases of the tournament.

The quarter-final clash will take place in Houston, where Argentina will rely heavily on Messi’s leadership and skills to secure a spot in the semi-finals. With the team’s captain back on the field, fans and teammates alike are optimistic about their chances against a strong Ecuador side. Messi’s return to the starting lineup is expected to provide a significant boost, both in terms of performance and morale, as Argentina continues its pursuit of Copa America glory.

Possible Argentina XI: Emiliano Martínez; Nahuel Molina, Cristian Romero, Lisandro Martínez, Nicolás Tagliafico; Rodrigo De Paul, Alexis Mac Allister, Enzo Fernández, Nicolás González; Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martínez.
