Argentina World Cup squad: Roster, top players in Messi’s last go

Finally, Lionel Messi broke through with Argentina on the international scene. But one prize still remains unclaimed.

More than a decade of international angst was extinguished with victory over Brazil in the 2021 Copa América final. For the first time with his country’s first team, Messi lifted a major trophy and a huge weight on his shoulders.

Five Copa Ámerica tournaments and four World Cups had produced little grief for Argentina fans watching Messi. But now, with an international trophy added to his already massive record at club level, Messi is in search of the ultimate trophy. If he is to be believed, this will be his last attempt to win it, and he just might have the team around him to do it.
