When Lionel Messi missed a penalty in the final of the Copa America and promptly retired from International football, the world was shocked.

We wondered how long it would last, and the answer has been handed to us.

We have to fix a lot of things in Argentine football, but I’d rather do that from the inside and not criticising from the outside.

And of course the internet had PLENTY to say.

Here’s the best of it:


Let’s all do that…

But who will miss all the chances in the final now?

It didn’t take long for Ronaldo to be mentioned…
