One possible explanation for Messi’s exclusion could be related to his recent transfer from PSG to Inter Miami. Adjusting to a new club, teammates, and playing style can be demanding, and national team managers often need to carefully manage players’ fitness and workload to prevent injuries. It’s possible that the coaching staff has chosen to rest Messi or give him more time to adapt to his new surroundings.
