Argentina and Barcelona superstar forward Lionel Messi, 29, calls it enough and retires from international football after missing a decisive penalty for the Argentine. Messi quits international football after he was reportedly in tears after missing in a penalty shootout as Chile won the Copa America final.

After Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero made a save from the first shootout by Arturo Vidal, Messi stepped up to take his country’s first shot. He kicked the ball, and sailed it clearly over the crossbar.

“For me the national team is over. I’ve done all I can, it hurts not to be a champion,” Messi said.
