Qatar 2022: When was the last time Paulo Dybala played for Argentina?


Argentina bounced back from a tough start at Qatar 2022 to make their way to the quarterfinals, but many were surprised not to see Paulo Dybala playing at this FIFA World Cup so far.

Argentina arrived at Qatar 2022 with high aspirations. Not only did they come off a remarkable campaign in South American qualification or Copa America success, but they also had a star-studded squad led by Lionel Messi, Paulo Dybala among others.

However, it’s four games into the FIFA World Cup for La Albiceleste and fans have yet to see the AS Roma superstar in action. So far, manager Lionel Scaloni has chosen many other names ahead of Dybala.

Despite missing eight games before the World Cup with a hamstring injury, Dybala recovered in time for the tournament. That’s why his absence in the last games surprised many.

When was Paulo Dybala’s last appearance with Argentina

Paulo Dybala’s last appearance for the Argentine national team came on June 5, 2022, coming off the bench after 62 minutes in an international friendly win over Estonia (5-0). Four days earlier, he had scored against Italy in the 2022 Finalissima despite playing only in the last five minutes.

Of course, many feel his lack of playing time with the national team doesn’t make sense. Will Dybala finally see the field against the Netherlands?
