Lionel Messi seems to love giving interviews at the moment and has been talking to TyC Sports about his career as a whole.

The Argentina international has spoken about how he would have loved to have lifted the World Cup with Argentina but wouldn’t swap it for what he has already won in his career.

“I would’ve loved to be a world champion,” he saud.

”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.”

The closest Messi came to winning the World Cup was at the 2014 World Cup when the Albiceleste were beaten 1-0 by Germany in the final. The next World Cup is in Qatar in 2022 but it remains to be seen if Messi will be at the tournament.
