Luis Suarez believes Lionel Messi will reverse his decision to quit Argentina.

Messi called time on his international career in the immediate aftermath of Argentina’s defeat to Chile in the Copa
America final.

The Barcelona star was left in tears having missed his penalty in the shootout, but several high-profile figures in
Argentina, including the nation’s president Mauricio Macri and Diego Maradona, have urged the 29-year-old not to go
through with his decision.

“I’m sure that he will change his mind, but whatever he decides he will still be the best ever,” Suarez told Radio
Tenfield.

“Knowing Leo, I’m sure it was said in a moment of sadness and helplessness.

“It would be a shame for football if he took this decision, but I’m sure he will reconsider and change his mind.

Messi has however won the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2005, helping Argentina defeat Nigeria in the final alnd also
spearheading a 1-0 win against Samson Siasia’s Nigeria coached U-23 side in the final of the 2008 Olympics football
event.
