- Considering my age and how much time is left, it seems difficult.

But it depends on how my career continues.

Next time I will be 36 years old, says Messi in a big interview with the Argentinian newspaper Olé.

Messi led Argentina to the country's third World Cup gold – and his first – in Qatar in December.

The Paris SG player scored seven goals, including two in the final where he also netted in the penalty shootout that decided the drama against France.

- I love playing football and as long as I feel good and feel that I am fit and continue to enjoy this, I will do it.

But it seems a long way until the next WC.

Lionel Messi turns 39 in the summer when the 2026 World Cup is decided in Mexico, USA and Canada.
