Lionel Messi has given numerous assurances, both before and during the 2022 World Cup, that the last round of the tournament would be the final one he would ever attend, regardless of whether or not Argentina would win the championship. The striker in question was 35 years old at the time, and he did not believe that he would be able to continue to compete at his optimum level during the 2026 World Cup.

Following Argentina’s victory in the tournament, Messi provided further confirmation that he would not take part in any further World Cup competitions. Despite the fact that he has stated that he is not in a hurry to retire from his international career because he wants to play as the “reigning world champion,” the striker has refused to discuss the 2026 World Cup.

However, it appears that Messi has changed his mind after having the opportunity to play for Inter Miami in the United States. Among the countries that will be hosting the World Cup in 2026, the United States of America, along with Canada and Mexico, is one of the countries that should be recognized. Additionally, the 2023 Golden Ball aims to continue making contributions to Argentina at a time when the country is experiencing a surge of devotion from its supporters.

During the time that Messi was helping Argentina win the World Cup in 2022, he was frequently criticized for only appearing to explode in Barcelona. Messi made the following statement in his most recent interview, which was broadcast on Star+: “Time will tell whether I will appear at the 2026 World Cup or not.” In point of fact, I am getting close to the age at which players typically do not participate in important events. Thus, I stated that I do not believe I will be attending the World Cup in 2026.

“When I won the World Cup in 2022, many people had the assumption that I would shortly step down from my position on the national team. Due to the fact that I have accomplished everything, that is a natural thought. The situation, on the other hand, is moving in a different direction. My desire to play for Argentina is stronger than it has ever been right now. As a result of the many years of agony that we have endured, we are currently experiencing a unique moment that I have never enjoyed with Argentina. I want to take pleasure in it.”

At the same time as I am not considering the 2026 World Cup, I am also not stating unequivocally that I will not take part in it since anything can take place. As a result of my age and performance, I believe that it is appropriate for me to refrain from taking part. However, events are taking place. Following my performance in Copa America, I will do additional evaluations. Despite the fact that reality is not simple, I do not rule out any possibility.
