FOOTBALL- Argentina star Lionel Messi has not lost heart after their semi-final exit in Copa America and says he will continue to play for his country.

Argentina lost 0-2 to Brazil in the semi-final on Tuesday.

“If I can still help in any way, I will continue to do so. I feel really good in this group,” said the five-time Ballon d’Or winner after the loss.

Not so long ago in June 2016, Messi had quit international football after Argentina’s loss in the 2016 Copa America final only to make a return in August of the same year.
