Lionel Messi retired from international football after missing a penalty as Argentina lost a shoot-out to Chile in the Copa America final on Sunday.
The 29-year-old Barcelona forward has decided to quit without winning a major trophy with his country.
Following the defeat at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Messi admitted after failing to win in four finals for Argentina he had decided not to carry on.
"I was thinking in the locker room that, that is it. I am no longer going to play for the national team. Like what I had just said, this is my fourth final, it is not for me. Unfortunately I have got this far (to the final). It is what I wanted more than anything, but it wasn't meant to be. I think this is it," he told Argentinian TV network TyC Sports.
