Its so awesome that they are both in the prime of their careers at similar times. It’s even more fantastic that they happen to face off multiple times a year in La Liga.

It’s sad Messi retired from Argentina. Watching him play in the last World Cup was a simple pleasure. That goal against Iran was absurd.

He’ll be back. He reportedly already told the president of Argentina that he will play again.

Edit: apparently he didn’t say it, but the Argentinian president is confident that he’ll be back after talking to him.

Good. It seemed like a rash emotion based decision after having a real tough two years losing to Chile twice and Germany. Argentina is still a threat in any tournament they play.

His tax issues in Spain seem like a much larger problem than Argentina losing, at least at the moment.
