When Lionel Messi announced he would be retiring from the Argentine national team, his decision had a huge aftermath, with some fans from around the world supporting him, while others criticized him harshly. However, after some time, the Barcelona star made up his mind and decided to once more join Argentina.
Messi even scored in his return, as his goal was the decisive one against Uruguay and proved just how valuable he is for his nation. After the game, the superstar talked to some journalists and tried to explain why he decided to retire and why he chose to come back.
The thing that Messi tried to imply the most was that he absolutely meant to retire after the Copa America and didn’t that he would come back, but ultimately just followed his heart and re-joined the national team.
