Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni did not pick Roma forward Paulo Dybala in the Argentina squad for Copa America 2024. His dynamic style of play has been important for Argentina, and there is no doubt that the 29-year-old will be his country’s most important attacker when Lionel Messi will retire from international football.

The entire Argentina team is dependent on Lionel Messi. He is the main man of the team. Paulo Dybala could have shared the responsibility with him. The Argentine’s playing style and evolution remains a puzzle for many to solve. He can be used in every position around the striker- as a number ten, as a left-winger or a right-winger. Dybala can struck up a formidable partnership with Lionel Messi and was thus handed more license to play around him- be it wide or behind him.

Lionel Messi has himself admitted that he has struggled to build up an on-pitch rapport with Paulo Dybala because the Argentina stars play so similarly. The two both like to cut in from the right, they both have stunning ball control, they both dribble with elegance and they both revel in the space between the opposition’s defence and midfield. Messi is 37 now, his stamina has also declined. Paulo Dybala could be used as an option to rest Messi. In case Messi is injured, it will be a serious problem to Argentina.

One thing which is confirmed is that Dybala is considered a heir to legendary Messi. When Lionel Messi retires, Dybala could find his spot straight into the Argentina squad. But it would be very difficult for Dybala to adapt playing in Argentina National Team if has not any experience in Argentina Squad. Lionel Salconi should have selected Paula Dybala in Argentina Squad for Copa America 2024 just so that he could be familiar to playing in major tournaments with Argentina.

Paulo Dybala’s relationship with the Argentina national team has never been on good terms. The former Juventus star has become a forgotten man for Lionel Scaloni as other talents of his age or younger have been given the chance to shine. Although it is known to all that Dybala had the worst phase of his career in this season, but he has now recovered fully and a player as talented as him must have given a chance in the squad. Dybala Copa America exclusion is also a setback for his fans.
