Lionel Messi has already dropped retirement hint as Argentina crash out of World Cup
Argentina were dumped out at the last-16 stage following a 4-3 loss to Didier Deschamps’ side at the Kazan Arena. Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring in a thrilling contest but Argentina had briefly taken the lead in the second half before Benjamin Pavard pulled France level with a stunning strike. Kylian Mbappe, the game’s standout star, then scored twice to tip the tie back in France’s favour, while Sergio Aguero scored late on to set up a tense finish. For Messi, the World Cup in Russia will represent a huge disappointment as he failed to inspire his side to another final.
Messi and Argentina were beaten by Germany in the World Cup final four years ago, but under Jorge Sampaoli this summer, the team always looked disjointed and far short of the quality required to make it far in the tournament. Following Argentina’s exit, the focus will now turn to Messi’s future with the national team and whether he will carry on until Qatar 2022. Messi will be 35 by the time the next World Cup is held but the Barcelona forward indicated just a few months ago that he could retire from international football if Argentina fail in Russia.
‘We feel that, if we won’t win the World Cup in Russia, the only way will be to give up the national team,’ Messi told La Cornisa in March. ‘I dream of winning the trophy in Russia. My wish is to live something similar to Brazil 2014. ‘You can do everything OK and fail, like Argentina in Brazil.’
