Lionel Messi shockingly called it quits after Argentina fell to Chile in Sunday's Copa America Centenario Final. The match ended in a 0-0 tie and proceeded to a penalty kicks before Chile edged out Argentina 4-2. It was Argentina's third finals loss in the last three years (one World Cup and two Copa Americas).


A heartbroken Messi spoke with reporters after the match and expressed his sorrow as well as his decision that the match would be his last as a member of the national team. 

​​In case your Spanish is a little rusty, here's a helping hand. 


"That's it. It's over for me with the national team", Messi revealed. "It's not for me. That's four finals. The decision has been made, I think so. [Winning] is what I wanted most. It didn't come. I think that's it. That's how I feel now, what I think. It's a great sadness. It hurts not to be a champion."

Messi was highly emotional after the game, so we will see if he sticks by this decision moving forward. What we do know is that it now appears we've seen the last of "La Pulga" in international play. 


Bummer.
