Lionel Messi has announcement his retirement from international football after Argentina lost to Chile in the Copa America 2016 final at the MetLife Stadium on Monday.

This was Argentina’s second in a row loss in the final of Copa America, both to Chile.

The Argentina and Barcelona forward, five times World Player of the Year, missed Argentina’s opening penalty in the Copa America shoot-out.

“The national team is over for me. It’s my decision,” Messi was cited as saying by the BBC.

“It’s tough, it’s not the time for analysis. In the dressing room I thought that the national team was over, it’s not for me (anymore),” Messi said on Twitter.

The announcement came right after that, with emotions running high.

Messi made his international debut for Argentina back in 2005. The Barcelona superstar recently became the highest goalscorer for Argentina, with 55 goals, beating Gabriel Batistuta’s mark.

Messi played 113 games for his nation. However, he will continue to play club football for Barcelona. But this decision is a huge loss for all the fans of the legendary forward across the world.

The 29-year-old Argentine forward was seen in tears after he failed to lead his nation to the Copa America 2016 title.
