Lionel Messi confirms he’ll retire after FIFA World Cup 2022 final

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi has confirmed that he will retire after the FIFA World Cup 2022 final on December 18.

The PSG star, who scored from a penalty and played equally important in the other two goals scored by Julian Alvarez against Croatia to take his country to the final, said the summit clash will be his last in the sky and white stripes.

“I feel very happy to be able to achieve this, to finish my World Cup journey by playing my last game in a final,” Messi told Argentine media outlet Diario Deportivo Ole.

The 35-year-old is playing at his fifth World Cup, surpassing the four of Diego Maradona and Javier Mascherano.

With his fifth goal in Qatar, he also surpassed Gabriel Batistuta as the top Albiceleste scorer at World Cups, netting 11 times.

This will be Messi’s last chance to lift the World Cup before calling it quits. He had ended up as a runner-up after losing to Germany in 2014 in Brazil.

Argentina will face either 2018 champions France (Group D winners) or Morocco (Group F winners) in the final.
