Don’t quit : Fans beg Messi as he ends international career in tears


There are mixed reactions from football fans around the world after the shocking news that Barcelona star Lionel Messi might never play for Argentina again following Sunday night’s Copa America final loss to Chile.

The Argentina captain blasted wide from the spot as his team lost 4-2 on penalties to Chile after a 0-0 draw in MetLife Stadium. The sight of Messi crying is not what you see everyday; it’s his opponents who are often left in tears but he couldn’t hold back at the final whistle as Chile celebrated yet another Copa triumph.

Speaking to the press after the match, Messi said his time with the Albiceleste was over.

“My thinking right now and thinking about it in the locker room, I’m done playing with the national team. I tried my hardest. It’s been four finals, and I was not able to win. I tried everything possible. It hurts me more than anyone, but it is evident that this is not for me. I want more than anyone to win a title with the national team, but unfortunately, it did not happen.”

Messi has now helped Argentina to four major finals; a world cup final and three Copa’s losing all four.
