Messi is already in Chile and, as reported by Record, has he wants revenge for the World Cup. “It’s my dream to win a title with Argentina. This group deserves to win something. After the World Cup we were very upset,” said the Argentine, referring to the defeat in the final at the Maracana when his side lost 1-0 against Germany.
The Barcelona striker is about to turn 28 years old and with almost 100 international appearances, he is now looking to add a Copa America title to his brilliant career and thus end the title drought for the national team.
Despite having debuted a decade ago, his best result with Argentina was the second place in Brazil last year, along with another runners-up spot in the 2007 Copa America – a tournament in which he was named as the best young player.
