‘I’m just going to say thank you for the enormous love received. I always dreamed of everything I experienced on this beautiful night.

‘It was probably my last match in this shirt in Argentina. And to be able to say that it was a wonderful night is an understatement.

‘Thank you, thank you and a thousand times thank you.

After the match, His national and club team-mate Lionel Messi also intimated that his international career was coming to an end.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner said he will reconsider his future in football later this year and admitted it is likely ‘many things will change.

‘I don’t know what I will do after the World Cup. I am thinking about what is coming,’ Messi said. ‘After Qatar, I will have to reassess many things.’
‘It has been a while that I am happy here, since before winning the Copa. I am thankful for all this. They make me feel every time I come to Argentina,’ Messi said.

Asked about him continuing with the national team after Qatar, Messi, who turns 35 in June, said: ‘I don’t know, the truth is I don’t know. I think about what is coming, which is close, Ecuador (on Tuesday). The preparation matches in June and September.’
