Lionel Messi contributed with a goal to Argentina’s win against red lantern Venezuela (3-0) in the South American qualifying zone for the World Cup at the end of this year. After the game, he was a bit secretive about his future with the national team. “After the World Cup in Qatar I will have to take stock. About what is good or bad. Let’s hope for the best,” said the 34-year-old attacker.

The superstar was asked for clarification and replied: “I don’t know. I think about what’s coming and what’s close, and that’s the match against Ecuador (Tuesday in Guayaquil). This is followed by the preparatory matches in September and October. Then there is the World Cup. And after that, I don’t know.”

Messi scored Argentina’s third goal, having been assured of a World Cup ticket since November. Nico González and Ángel di Maria also hit the mark in the Estadio Alberto J. Armando of Buenos Aires.

Messi, who will be celebrating his 35th birthday at the end of June, is having a lesser season at his new club PSG. In the summer he left the club of his heart, FC Barcelona.

Argentina is second in the standings with 38 points, four less than leader Brazil.
