Misses U.S. Open Cup match Messi (rest) is not in the squad for Wednesday's U.S. Open Cup match against Houston.
Impact Messi fails to make the squad Wednesday despite all of the rumors and speculation on his status over the last week. There's a chance he actually has an injury, but manager Tata Martino has kept the situation tight to the vest, and it's being called fatigue and rest. Messi last appeared Sept. 20 when he was subbed off in the first half and will remain a doubt to feature for Saturday's league match against NYC FC.
