Lionel Messi has sensationally returned to Argentine National team after holding talks with new coach Edgardo Bauza. Messi, 29, who is Argentina’s all-time leading scorer with 55 goals in 113 appearances, quit after Argentina’s Copa America final defeat by Chile in June in which he cried and told media reporters after the match that he had decided to retire. But in a statement reported by media in Argentina, the Barcelona striker said he made the U-turn for the “love of the country” and “to help from within”.
