They will be there. As expected, Lionel Messi (Miami) and Angel Di Maria (Benfica) were called up by Lionel Scaloni for the 2024 Copa America (from June 20 to July 14). The two former Paris Saint-Germain players, world champions in 2022 with Argentina, will be traveling to the United States.

Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria, 36 years old each, were both part of the adventure, in 2021, during which the Albiceleste won the last Copa America. Lionel Scaloni’s players therefore have a crown to defend. Two other former Paris Saint-Germain players were selected: Leandro Paredes (AS Roma) and Giovani Lo Celso (Tottenham). Lyon’s Nicolás Tagliafico was also called up.

In the final of the 2022 World Cup, Lionel Messi scored a double, and Angel Di Maria a goal. The Argentines won in the penalty shootout, while Kylian Mbappé scored a hat-trick for the France team.
