Lionel Messi anounces that he’s retiring from the Argentina national team

28 Jun

In a shocking interview after Argentina lost in the Copa America final, Lionel Messi says he’s done with international soccer.

Following Argentina’s loss to Chile in the Copa America final, Lionel Messi was visibly devastated. Not long after the tournament’s closing ceremonies, Messi did an interview with TyC Sports in Argentina where he announced that he would no longer play for the national team.

“For me, the national team is over,” he said after defeat by Chile in the Copa America final. “I’ve done all I can. It hurts not to be a champion.”

Messi, 29, has won eight La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues with Spanish side Barcelona.

But his only major international honour is Olympic gold at the 2008 Games.
