Lionel Messi has hinted that he may retire from international football following this year’s World Cup.

On Friday night, Messi was a part of Argentina’s 3-0 triumph over Venezuela, with his side already having clinched a berth in the November tournament in Qatar.

However, when addressing the media following the game, the 34-year-old intimated that he may use the tournament’s conclusion to refocus his career.

Messi said: “I don’t know what I will do after the World Cup. I am thinking about what is coming. After Qatar, I will have to reassess many things.

“The truth is I don’t know. I think about what is coming, which is close, Ecuador (on Tuesday). The preparation matches are in June and September. Let’s hope these go the best way possible. But for sure after the World Cup, many things will change.”

The PSG forward has had a disappointing season in the French capital, scoring seven goals and providing ten assists in 25 appearances across all competitions.
