Argentina Superstar and Captain, Lionel Messi has reportedly declared his intentions not to retire from International football without winning the World Cup.
According to The Sun, Messi said he will not like to retire without winning the FIFA’s biggest competition.
Messi was runners-up at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and reached the quarter-finals at the two previous tournaments.
“I’ve always had the dream of watching me raise the World Cup. And then seeing the emotion that goes with it. So we cannot give up on that dream.
“I have won all the most important tournaments but I am ambitious to the end. I would not like to retire from active football without being a world champion with my country,” Messi said.
Argentina needs to beat the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their final Group D match in St. Petersburg on Tuesday to keep alive their hopes of reaching the knockout stage.
