Lionel Messi was Argentina’s first penalty taker in Sunday’s shootout, propelling his effort. That didn’t seem so consequential at the time, as Chile’s Arturo Vidal, shooting first, had already seen his soft effort saved by Sergio Romero. But Lucas Biglia would miss the Argentines’ fourth attempt as well, and the Chileans, having missed no other shots, won 4-2 to become the champions yet again.
Messi really cried, obviously this is his final game!
“The national team is over for me,” other reports quoted him as saying. “It’s not for me after four finals. The decision is taken, I believe.”
