The decision of this international star from the tournament is expected to be very influential, but he has not made any official statement yet.
And the Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” expected that Messi would announce his position on Wednesday after his country’s meeting with Colombia.
Many believe that he will agree to follow the example of the Brazilian national team players, who refused to hold the tournament on their soil after Argentina withdrew from hosting it.
The newspaper suggested that there would be communication between Messi and his friend Neymar on this subject, and the Brazilian international who also revolted against the establishment of the tournament on Brazilian soil.
Not only Neymar, but Messi’s communication with Luis Suarez can be very influential due to the two’s closeness to each other, and the latter’s policy of refusing to hold the tournament in Brazil.
It is true that the Copa America holds great hopes for Messi so that he can bring him his first gold medal to Argentina, but the situation of Corona in Brazil may make him stand in line with the demands to cancel the tournament, according to what was reported by the “Goal” website.
