The greatest footballer ever failed again to win a world cup. It was probably Lionel Messi’s last chance to win it. Argentina was just too weak, there was no team spirit and most of the players underperformed. It was symbolic for Argentina’s last decade. They lost three consecutive finals (WC 2014, Copa America 2015, 2016) in extra time. Lionel Messi did everything, but it was still not enough.
