The greatest upset today is for Football fans as the Superstar Lionel Messi announces his retirement from International Football after Argentina lost to Chile in last night’s Copa Cup Final.
The match was extended to Penalty shootout and there happened the mishappening. Lionel Messi missed a penalty for the first time in his life and that one mistake led to the defeat in the Final of Copa America.

Messi led Argentina to three finals and unfortunately never won any of them. Even in the FIFA world cup, Argentina lost in the extra time and also lost last year’s Copa Cup and now again lost it.
The same happened with Sachin Tendulkar (cricketer) who got to hold the cup for the very first time after 24 years of hard work and struggle. It is said that the greatest don’t need any trophies, and this is true for him too, because he is great and he doesn’t need a trophy to prove it.
And we just can’t keep AB de Villiers out of the league when it comes to not winning titles. AB worked really hard in 2015 Cricket World Cup, but ended up losing to New Zealand in the semi-finals.
Messi announced the retirement in an interview just after the match and said that he’s done with the national team. And in just a few minutes the news spread like a virus and the internet went crazy.
Here’s a tweet from the interview,
Messi: ‘I’m taking this decision for me and for the many people who want this. I’ve tried so hard, but I’m leaving without managing it.’
