Lionel Messi announced on Tuesday that he will not represent Argentina at the FIFA World Cup in 2026. After his transfer to Inter Miami and the affirmation of his big deal, he made this choice. Messi claimed that he had already played his final World Cup match and would not be representing Argentina in the 2026 competition.

Argentina won their third World Cup with Messi’s leadership in December. Fans, teammates, and coach Lionel Scaloni all hoped he would reconsider and play in the 2026 World Cup, which will be hosted by the US, Mexico, and Canada. However, Messi made it clear that he would not be attending the upcoming World Cup in an interview.

Messi contributed significantly to Argentina’s victory during the 2022 World Cup by scoring seven goals and becoming the first player to do so since 1986. He became the first player in World Cup history to win the Golden Ball twice for being the best player in the competition.
