In addition to playing in CONMEBOL’s World Cup qualifiers, the next major tournament Messi and Argentina will play in is the Copa América 2024. The tournament will take place in the United States, withLa Albicelesteas reigning champion.

Claudio Tapia, president of the Argentine Football Association, discussed the upcoming tournament with Messi leading the way as they try to repeat as champions.

“There is already a year left for the Copa América… I don’t know if it will be big for the next World Cup,” Tapia told Argentine media.Olé(u/tIF). “First, of course, the FIFA date (September) and the qualifications. At the next World Cup, we Argentines will hopefully have him on the field to put on the jersey of the national team. Those of us who know him know it goes one step at a time.

“It is today to enjoy that we will have [Messi] for another year with our shirt, like [Angel Di Mara]. They can continue to give much more to the national team. And you have to enjoy being world champion, that everyone has the desire to keep winning things, that’s worth a lot more.”

If Messi takes part in the Copa América, many will wonder if the 35-year-old will be allowed to participate in the 2026 World Cup. The veteran will turn 38 that summer, so if Argentina wants to take him for his sixth World Cup, it’s up to the player whether he wants to to go.
