- Lionel Messi is now on the verge of hanging his international boot

- He is said to have ruled out any chance of playing for Argentina again in 2018

- He captained his national team to Russia 2018 losing to France in the round of 16

Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, has reportedly claimed that he will be out of action from international duty for the rest of 2018.

He is now on the brink of quitting the national team after Argentina were defeated in the knock out stages at the 2018 FIFA World Cup by France.

Lionel Messi is said to be considering his future playing for his nation with the 31-year-old keeping a close eye on who the Argentine FA pick as their new manager.

According to reports, the five time Ballon d'Or winner is no longer interested in playing for the national team in 2018.

He has played 128 games, netting 65 goals for his country and helped them win an Olympic Gold medal in 2008 where they beat Nigeria in the final.

Earlier, TUKO.co.ke had reported how Argentina international Lionel Messi returned to Barcelona after crashing out with his national team from the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

In a video twitted by ESPN, Lionel Messi arrived Barcelona airport with a frown face and ignored all the reporters who were waiting for his arrival.

He walked straight into a parked jeep where his wife has been waiting for her to take him home.
