But after that, the player who recently joined Inter Miami did not come to Indonesia. It was not explained why Messi did not participate.

“Messi arrives in Beijing. Exclusive information: It is estimated that he will only play the first match against Australia, where he will not travel to Indonesia for the match on June 19,” said Leo Paradizo as quoted from his Twitter account, Saturday (10/6/ 2023).
