Argentine veteran Lionel Messi finally speaks up about the future of Argentina national team and urges the association to support the team, which is very young.
He believes that the current team holds a lot of capacity and will be a strong team if given good support. He also thinks that he is well fitted with the team which apparently means that there is no any intention for him to retire from International football.
Following the defeat to Brazil in the Copa America 2019 semi-final match, this is what Leo told:
It’s the start of something new, beautiful. A good group is coming, it’s important, they showed at this Copa that they love the Argentina national team and there is a future. I found myself fitting in well with the group. If I have to help out somehow, I’ll do it.
Hopefully they respect these kids because they did a huge job, a very big sacrifice. they are the future and we could be calm because Argentina is going to continue to grow.
