Argentina and Ukraine to play at the 2024 Olympics

The head coach of the Argentine Olympic team, Javier Mascherano, whose team will be Ukraine's rival at the 2024 Games, has decided on the players who will play in Paris outside the age quota. According to the regulations, each team is allowed to enter three players who will be over 23 years old at the time of the competition.

Mascherano decided to refuse the legendary Lionel Messi, ESPN Argentina reports. The Inter Miami forward will not come to the French capital due to the heavy schedule of the club season.
