It is quite possible that Lionel Messi last summer in Russia, his last world cup played. “I don’t know if I will be there at the world cup of 2022 in Qatar will be”, well-known, the Argentine captain Friday in an interview with Fox Sports.

That world cup is not until the end of 2022 played and then the five-time winner of the Golden Ball all of 35 years old. At club level and individually Messi about all won, but the crown on the work with the Argentine national team never materialized. With the 2014 world cup and the Copa America in 2015 and 2016 lost La Albiceleste three finals in a row.

Last year in Russia were the Argentines already in the eighth finals by the eventual winner France off. “If I have that penalty kick in the group stage against Iceland not had missed, had everything else looked”, gave Messi. “I would be in my career yet like to still win a prize for my country, or at least as often as possible try.”

The next opportunity to do so is the Copa America, which is about two weeks from start is in neighboring Brazil. A in comparison with a few years ago weakened Argentina is in group B against Colombia, Paraguay and Qatar.
