Messi, the greatest player ever to walk on this planet is better off without all the negative publicity, the pressure, and the drama called Argentinas National Team. I think this is good for him.
I wish that Messi would reconsider his decision. I have enjoyed him playing for almost a decade in Argentina and Spain. He should be considered one of the greatest. It would be a great loss for all if he were give up because of a game. Sr. Messi, there are many more opportunities to go! from a person born in Chile and raised in the Great USA!
