Lionel Messi has retired from international football after suffering heartache with Argentina against Chile in the Copa America final on Sunday night.
The Barcelona forward has decided to quit without winning a major trophy with his country – having been to four major finals.
Following the defeat at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Messi said he was calling it a day.
“I think it’s best for everyone, for me and for many people who want it “The choice for me is over, it is a decision. I tried many times (to be champion) but did not.”
