Lionel Messi Considering Quitting The Argentina National Team Amidst Criticism by dammybravo(m): 6:46pm On Jul 07, 2015
Reports gathered indicates, Lionel Messi is considering taking a break from the Argentina national team, because he’s tired of the constant criticism being aimed his way by compatriots.

Messi was the only player to score in the penalty shoot-out against Chile at the Copa America on saturday, which Argentina lost 4-1 on penalties.

He’s been so hurt by the personal attacks aimed at him in recent days that he’s considering taking a break away from Argentina duty.

Messi was one of the scapegoats for his country’s defeat to Chile in the Copa America final last Saturday.

He was accused of lacking energy and passion, and Ole didn’t hold back either. Their editorial made headlines because it said Messi should be stripped of the armband.

Messi was subject to criticism after a similarly poor performance in the World Cup final defeat to Germany last year.

His relationship with Argentina fans has always been bizarrely testy because they feel he should be able to replicate his Barcelona performances.

No matter what their reasons are for launching abuse at Messi, it’s invalid to personally attack him. The likely scene is that he’ll sit out a couple of World Cup qualifiers, but if he finds he’s not missing international duty then Argentina fans will curse their stupidity.

I support king Leo on this, this argentines are so annoying, instead of them to blame those useless moving objects playing with Messi, they expect Messi to always perform the magic, them no shout Higuine, Aguero, d'maria, pastore and co.
