Five-time Ballon D’Or winner and the captain of Argentina, Lionel Messi has announced a return to the national team. Messi earlier announced his retirement after a humbling loss to Chile in the Copa America final denied him of the trophy at his second try.
An emotional Messi who couldn’t hide the pain, declared he was retiring from the National team. It was a move that disappointed many, as many Argentines called on him to reconsider his retirement.
Messi is the Albaceleste’s all-time leading goal scorer and there’s very little doubt that the team is worse off without him.
