Lionel Messi Might never win an international trophy

Messi, who has only won titles with Argentina at
under-age levels, lost the third major final of his
international career in Santiago, with Chile
triumphing 4-1 on penalties after the visitors had
dominated the goal-scoring opportunities
through 120 goalless minutes.
Argentina’s failure at the Estadio Nacional will
only serve to strengthen arguments by critics
that Messi will not be truly great until he earns
silverware for his country, but Lavezzi reckons it
is only a matter of time before he dismisses
those doubters.
Messi was also on the losing side in the 2007
Copa America final and last year’s World Cup
decider in Brazil.
“At some point Leo [Messi] is going to win
something with Argentina,” said Lavezzi, who
came off the bench in the first half to replace
Angel di Maria.
“We thought this was an opportunity to make
our mark, but unfortunately we could not. It
hurts a lot. Once again we are left with a bitter
taste. It hurts because we believed that this was
the chance to win something.
