Tragic news for all the football fans out there as Argentina’s star footballer Lionel Messi has reported retirement from International Football after his nation’s misfortune in Copa America Championship last on Sunday night.
Heartbroken Lionel Messi has proclaimed that he is resigning from the Argentine national group. The forward missed a penalty in the Copa America Centenario last shoot-out against Chile as his group lost their third final in three years. Messi, who was in tears after the match, talked after the diversion to Argentine TV and clarified his choice. ‘That is it. It’s over for me with the national group,’.
It’s not for me. That is four finals. The choice has been made, I suspect as much. [Winning] is the thing that I needed most. It didn’t come. I believe that is it. That is the way I feel now, what I think. It’s an incredible misery.
Messi may change his opinion, however until further notice the steady frustration with his national side and his outrage with the AFA (Argentine Football Association) has finished in this response. Let us all hope that this legend will continue to exhibit his football skills all around the world, whether it is for his nation or the respective leagues.
