Team News, Preview, and Argentina vs Uruguay Lineups

Argentina

The host nation is perfect after four rounds of matches in their qualifying campaign and will be looking to continue the impressive streak that saw them top the South American group. Messi will once again captain the team after his season in the MLS has ended.

Predicted lineup: E. Martinez, Tagfliafico, Otamendi, Acuna, Molina, Lo Celso, De Paul, Fernandez, Mac Allister, Messi, L. Martinez.

Uruguay

It has been a great start to the World Cup 2026 ambition for Uruguay who are second in the group behind Argentina. Uruguay has won twice thus far drawing and losing once. Darwin Nunez is the man of the show for Uruguay who are looking to once again qualify for the biggest tournament in the world.

Predicted lineup: Rochet, Vinna, Piquerez, Olivera, Araujo, Vecino, Nandez, de Arrascaeta, Valverde, Nunez, Rodriguez.

Player to Watch: Lionel Messi

There is still no one more important playing for Argentina than Messi. The 36-year-old moved to the United States a few months ago and playing in a league that isn't one of the best in the world will most certainly extend his national team career.

Messi is the leader for Argentina in many ways, he has made 178 appearances thus far and recorded 106 goals. After winning the World Cup title last year, many suggested he would retire from the national side, but he continues to play and produce at the highest level.
