FOOTBALL- Argentina star player Lionel Messi is considering retirement after the 2018 World Cup. His international career began in 2005.

“I don’t know. It will depend how we do, how it ends,” the star attacker told Sport.

“The fact we’ve lost three finals now has led to some complicated moments with the Argentine press due to the differences in seeing what it means to reach a final.

“It is not easy and [reaching three finals] has to be appreciated. It’s true that winning them is important, but getting there is not easy.”

Argentina commence their campaign against Iceland in Moscow on June 16 before further Group D clashes with Croatia and Nigeria.
