Despite enjoying considerable success at club level with Barcelona, while also collecting five Ballons d’Or, the 31-year-old forward is still waiting on a first senior international honor.

He has come agonizingly close to breaking that duck on a number of occasions, but his dreams have always been dashed in the most gut-wrenching of fashions.

Former Argentina and Barcelona fitness coach Elvio Paolorosso told Jogo Bonito of the fallout from a painful defeat: “The dressing room after the Copa America was very painful, but the worst was to come.

“At two in the morning, more or less, I went to the store room and found Messi completely alone, crying like a kid who had lost his mother.

“He was distraught and nobody could console him. I gave him a hug and we had a little wine together.

“I had Messi with Barcelona and Argentina, and all I have for him are words of gratitude. He always cooperated well and even noticed if the pitch was hard or soft.”
