Many expressed their anger on Messi for missing the penalty in the final but the Politicians of Argentina stood up in his favour by urging to take back his retirement decision and start playing again in the name of Nation. This somehow makes sense because Messi should have not gave up by retiring, instead he should have hold the pain and give his best in the upcoming International Tournament.
