On different occasions, the 32-year-old has come close to winning a title with Argentina but he was in the losing team in three Copa America finals as well the 2014 World Cup final.

Despite the setbacks, Messi isn’t willing to trade any of his 34 trophies with Barcelona to become a world champion.

When asked whether he would swap that haul for one World Cup trophy with Argentina, Messi told TyC Sports: “I would've loved to be a world champion.

“But I don't think I would change anything else in my career to be one.

“This is what I was given, what God gave me. It is what it is.

“I couldn't dream of everything that I experienced after. It was far bigger than anything I could've imagined.”
