Messi finally achieved his World Cup dream on Sunday in Qatar as Argentina beat France to lift the trophy for the third time. The Argentina captain scored twice for La Albiceleste as an exciting game finished 3-3 after extra time and went all the way to penalties.
Messi then coolly converted his spot-kick as Argentina won the shoot-out 4-2 to be crowned world champions.
“No, I’m not going to retire from the Argentina national team,” he told TyC Sports. “I want to continue playing as a champion.”
Messi also said he had a feeling he was going to win the tournament this time around.
