Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has insisted he will not retire from international football, until he wins the World Cup trophy.

Messi celebrated his 31st birthday on Sunday, but says he has not given up on his dream of winning the biggest title in world football.

The Barcelona superstar will be seeking to help his side qualify for the round of 16 on Tuesday, when they take on the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a must-win Group D clash.

“It means so much because for Argentina the World Cup is special – and for me too.

“I’ve always had the dream of watching me raise the World Cup. And then seeing the emotion that goes with it.

“My hair stands on end just thinking about that moment. It would make millions of Argentines in the world happy.

“So we cannot give up on that dream.

“I have won all the most important tournaments but I am ambitious to the end. I would not like to retire from active football without being a world champion with my country,”
Messi said.

You refuse to get your world cup hopes on Iceland and Croatia but thinking. i will trade my country for you, i do like you as a Barca player and as a Barca fans way back before you, i'm sorry, my country will not work for you to eat, Angentina has a whole nation doesn't have upto 30million population but my country has over 200Million... Our dear country needs the trophy more than your country, so keep quiet, remain calm or carry injury make we go through abeg.
