Messi recently accepted an interview and in the interview, he also revealed that if he didn’t win the 2018 FIFA World Cup, he would probably choose to retire from Argentina national team. It is very likely that the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be his last World Cup he plays for his country.
For the upcoming Russia World Cup, Messi said: “The World Cup is getting closer, and I am clearly aware of this. But now I have some very important things to do for Barcelona. Indeed, I know many people hope that I can win the World Cup championship, which makes me touched. I need to work hard day after day and don’t just to consider the World Cup in June.”
Regarding the argument that if Argentina does not win the championship and he will retire from the national team, Messi said: “Everything in the past has made me feel that this may be the last time I play on the World Cup stage. I think if we still can’t win the championship this time, then what we have experienced will once again pressure us. In that case, we may have no choice but to retire from the national team.”
“I have been thinking that I can reach the World Cup finals once again and win the game. We all know it is different to get the World Cup title. In 2014 we were so close to achieve it. We all want to win the World Cup, including my family and the whole Argentina.” said Messi.
