Russia 2018: Possibly My Last Chance To Win Trophy With Argentina – Messi

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi has said that the Russia 2018 World Cup could be his last chance to win a trophy with the senior national team.

The 30-year-old five-time Ballon D’Or winner featured in three consecutive finals – two Copa Americas and the 2014 World Cup – but failed to win any for the Albiceleste.

This has drawn severe criticism from local press, which has sometimes questioned the commitment of the players, especially Messi.

However, Messi inspired awe among Argentines when he scored a hattrick against Ecuador to send Argentine to the World Cup in Russia.

But the Barcelona man has said that the 2018 World Cup could be his last chance to win silverware for the team.

He told La Cornisa TV, “It’ s just the feeling that this group of players has. It seems that having reached three straight finals didn’t mean anything. Obviously, we depend on results and unfortunately, we reached three finals and we didn’t win them.

“A lot was said about us. The criticisms hurt back then. But the demand is going to be there for this group to get it done. We think that if we don’t do it, we are going to get a lot more (criticism) and we are not going to have another possibility.”
