don't waste ur time Bro,Messi has finally decided.I once wrote an articule about Messi and Mikel=Prodigy and tradegy.well both have prodigy but started in place of one another.Nemesis seems to catch up with Messi where it hurts most.What brought Messi into Limelight was cheating Nigeria of that U20 world cup!!!
What u sow u reap.
I remember The way Mikel cried that day!!! Mikel cried earlier,now Messi is crying Late.
The comparision between two players is indescribable,but how they started is what matters talkless of how they end.
The corrupt Fifa has always be Favouring messi,now that sepp and platini has gone,i ask you did u hear anything about Messi outside barcelona





Receive sense in jesus name amen x20 Fire! Fire!! Fire!!! grin grin grin

Messi can only have himself to blame for his national team woes. He's an icon in the world of football with a very high level of control and authority. He knows how he's been used to achieve success in Barcelona, why did he stick to the midfield role for the national team knowing fully the havocs the useless players upfront have done in times past? Di maria, Aguero, Palacio and Higuain have all failed to deliver when it mattered most, and these same players have always been played upfront with Messi playing behind them. Is that how it worked for him in Barcelona? No! Why can't he insist on player upfront where he can decide things himself rather than passing to a certain Higuain who has sworn never to do well in the finals? Or does the team have no player who can bring the ball from the midfield to the forwards? Messi at times, instead of pass to the useless players upfront could have decided to single-handedly take on his markers and score, this he's done so many times in Barcelona. He's the focal point in Barca while he's just another player in the national team.

When he was basking goal after goal against Panama, USA and the rest, did you call to question his playing role?
Spare me all that fluke analysis.

What has that got to do with winning silverware with country?

Who knows time will tell if Messi can get that feat if he will agree to switch over to other league in Europe

Messi is such a disgrace and a glory hunter, so he cant accept defeat, that is why he wants to retire. that shows how mentally fit ronaldo is. the best of the best never quit... messi is just a cry baby like is fellow barca fan kids... more reason why he doesnt want to leave barca because of the success

Chile 0-0 Arg 2015 copa final

Chile 0-0 Arg 2016 copa final.


You are such a sad person. It is quite sad you have let hatred becloud your judgment. Even when an enemy suffers the least you can do is show some empathy to indicate you are still human. It is pathetic that you carry so hate in you for someone who barely knows you exist.

Such a pity.

Argentina have: Aguero, Di Maria, Higuian, Masherano but you're comparing him to CR that has Nani as his best team mate.

People thought Portugal will lose to Portugal and Messi will win Copa America but man no be God

If you had criticised Ronaldo for missing a penalty last week and you now sympathize with Messi for missing penalty then something iS wrong with you

Naani misses a chance and it is " why didn't CR 7 score". Higuian misses a chance and it become " Messi has poor teammates at Argentina"

I hope the media will just tear up Messi as they did Ronaldo for missing penalty.

Lionel Andre Messi just lost a penalty (The first in the shoot out) and cost Argentina the Copa America trophy, if it is Ronaldo now some people "no go let us hear word"

hmmm!

What a very sad ending for his national footballing career!

He had a very excellent beginning for his nation winning the 2005 WYC and Olympic football tournaments in Holland and Beijing resp. Incidentally Nigeria was the opponent defeated in the final of the two events.


I'm tempted to say if Nigeria was opportuned to play and qualify for these football finals, Brazil 2006, Copa America 2015 and 2016, Messi would be celebrating 3 consecutive medals for his country this morning.


Messi please don't retire. Messi please fast and pray for Nigeria and Argentina to qualify against all odds and meet in the final of 2018 world cup so that you can celebrate a trophy playing for Argentine national team



Another idiot spotted undecided u like Messi so much u want him to lift the world cup against ur country? U must be faulty mentally...

Having the best teammates does not guarantee success, it only set high expectations from the team.

This your "Higuian misses a chance and it become " Messi has poor teammates at Argentina" is baseless. Messi has been solely criticized for Argentina failures. Have you seen a major article criticizing Higuain or Aguero on their missed chances?

Media preyed on Ronaldo missing a penalty because he accused Iceland team having small mentality and because scoring goals is the only way he can help the Portuguese team.

Messi has been most exciting player to watch in Copa America and he's arguably the best in the tournament.
