Despite pleas for him to stay, Lionel Messi says:”For me, the national team is over. I have done all i can. It hurts not to be a champion“.
One can’t blame Lionel Messi for this decision if we take a look at his short comings in the national side. He lost two Copa America Finals to Chile on Penalties, and he also lost the 2014 World Cup to Germany after his side was beaten 1-0 with Gotze’s goal.
Argentina all time great, Maradona has pleaded with Lionel Messi not to go and now, even the President has also pleaded by pressing forward to post a tweet publicly to do so.
