Qatar 2022, Lionel Messi has already made his decision
Argentine acknowledges that 2026 is too far away
Argentina is in the finals. On Sunday it will attempt to win the World Cup a full 36 years after Maradona and co. won the title in Mexico. Leading the albiceleste will be Messi, the team’s true dragoon (five goals to his credit).
Messi, in the post-match of the match he won with Croatia, was clear: “I am proud to be able to end my World Cup career playing this final. What I am experiencing is something exciting. Definitely Sunday will be my last game in a World Cup. There is too much time left until the next one (2026, ed.) and I don’t think I have any. So I hope to finish in the best possible way,” his words reported by Marca.
The PSG ace complimented his national teammates, “This group, beyond the qualities it has, is very intelligent. It knows how to read the moments of the match.”
