Messi and Lucas Biglia missed their shots in the match that had ended 0-0 at the end of extra time.

"For me the national team is over. I have done all I can, it hurts not to be a champion," he told reporters after the match, according to Aljazeera.

 The 29-years old Barcelona star couldn’t win the title for Argentina despite playing alongside Argentinian stars like Angel Di Maria, Sergio Aguero among others.
