Following Chile Defeat Lionel Messi Retires From International Football

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi, 29 has announced her retirement from International football after Sunday night's Copa America final loss to Chile.  Argentina lost 4-2 on penalties to Chile after a 0-0 draw in MetLife Stadium, and an emotional Messi said after the match that his career with the national team is over.

The teams were down to 10 men by the end of the first half, and it ultimately took a penalty shootout to determine the winner, with Chile emerging triumphant.

Messi when asked if he would wear his country's shirt again said,

"I don't think so," he said. "I've thought about it. Like I said earlier, "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."

"My thinking right now and thinking about it in the locker room, I'm done playing with the national team," he told a group of reporters
