You don’t always get what you want in life

If the world was a just place, I’d have a delicious breakfast in front of me right now while I sip on ice cold orange juice. And Lionel Messi would have an international trophy with the Argentina senior national team.

Messi is the best player to have ever played the game of football, and in another era he would’ve won numerous Copa America titles and a couple of World Cups to boot.

As it happens, he hasn’t, and instead we are left to lament the incompetence of his international teammates who appear unable to deal with the fact that they have the GOAT on their team.

Ahead of what may be his final appearance for his country, we’ve put together a little quiz looking back at the wee magician’s international career. So test your knowledge and see how well you know the pained existence that is Lionel Messi’s time playing for Argentina.
