Lionel Messi Career

Due to the fact that Messi holds citizenship in both Argentina and Spain, he was able to compete for the national teams of both countries. After the director of football at Barcelona, Carles Rexach, brought the young boy to the attention of the Royal Spanish Football Federation in 2003, the selectors for Spain’s Under-17 squad began pursuing him as a potential player. Messi turned down the opportunity to play for Argentina because he had always wanted to play for La Albiceleste.

In June of 2004, the Argentine Football Association organized two under-20 friendlies against Paraguay and Uruguay with the intention of finalizing his position as a player for Argentina in FIFA. This was done with the intention of preventing Spain from acquiring him in any way possible. On June 29, five days after his 17th birthday, he made his debut for his country against Paraguay.

He scored once and provided two assists in an triumph over the South American nation. As a direct result of their unsuccessful performance in the qualification round, low expectations were held for Argentina coming into the 2018 World Cup. This was compounded by the fact that the team suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Spain in March of that year.

The media had been speculating in the days leading up to Argentina’s first game about whether or not this would be Messi’s final World Cup. On June 16, during the team’s opening group match against Iceland, Messi missed a potentially game-winning penalty kick, which ultimately resulted in a draw for the side. Messi made his triumphant return to Argentina in March 2023, just after he had been crowned world champion, and he played in two friendly in his own nation.

During Argentina’s victory over Panama, he scored his 99th goal for his country with a free-kick; this goal was also his 800th senior goal for either his club or his country in his whole career. Messi recorded his ninth hat trick for Argentina in the game that followed, which was played against Curacao. He also contributed an assist to Argentina’s victory over Curacao.

Messi became only the third player in the history of the sport to become the first player to score 100 goals for his country’s national team when he scored the first of his three goals.
