Lionel Messi, the captain of Argentina, stated on Thursday that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will "surely" be his final tournament. “It’s my last World Cup, surely. I feel good physically, I was able to do a very good pre-season this year, which I couldn’t do last year. It was essential to get to where I am, with a good state of mind and a lot of hope,” Messi told ESPN Argentina. Messi, who will play in his fifth World Cup, made his international debut for Argentina in 2005. Since then, he has earned 164 caps for the team and is the all-time leading scorer with 90 goals.
