Lionel Messi and Argentina’s hopes of winning World Cup 2018 ended on Saturday after France defeated them 4-3 in the last 16 stage.

A brace from PSG forward Kylian Mbappe, a goal from Benjamin Pavard and an early penalty from Antoine Griezmann led Didier Deschamps’ team to the quarter-finals of the tournament.

A sensational strike from Angel Di Maria, a deflected goal from Gabriel Mercado and a late Sergio Aguero consolation goal did keep Argentina in what was a classic World Cup encounter, but it was not quite enough as Jorge Sampaoli‘s team bowed out of the competition.

Here, we take a look at some of the best images from what was probably Messi’s last game at the World Cup, and probably his last in an Argentine shirt.
