Is this the new International “Crying Jordan” meme?

In case you missed it, Lionel Messi, Argentina’s native son and perhaps the world’s best soccer player, botched a penalty kick – a normal guaranteed goal for someone of his caliber.

Only it was a penalty kick on one of the world’s biggest stages in the COPA America Championship game.

His miss was one of 2 misses for Argentina. Chile was successful on 4 of their 5, which sealed the deal and sent Argentina home as runner-ups.



It’s easy to feel bad for Messi. He hasn’t won a World Cup Championship or COPA America Championship, and he’s never performed as expected on the international stage. In fact after last night’s debacle, Messi declared his retirement from international competition.

He may still be incredibly talented and one of the best players in the world, but this is a huge mark on his career resume.
