For Messi, retiring is a nonverbal apology

Copa America

Time is now for Argentina

Lionel Messi is an artist disguised as a footballer -- losses don't matter

The FC crew discuss whether Lionel Messi's international retirement harms his chances of being called the greatest ever.

LOS ANGELES -- As in life itself, not all things in sports can or should be valued based on winning or losing. When it comes to athletes who produce true works of art, bring unmatched talent and imagination to the game and reach extraordinary levels with their mastery, wins and losses matter even less. Lionel Messi is one such star.

When it comes to Messi, one can speak of artistry. Watching Messi play football is similar to appreciating a painting by Vincent Van Gogh, a work of art by Leonardo...

For Lionel Messi, retiring is a nonverbal apology

The FC crew discuss whether Lionel Messi's international retirement harms his chances of being called the greatest ever.

BUENOS AIRES -- It seems like a curse. There just aren't many footballing reasons to explain Argentina's latest failure in the Copa America Centenario final against Chile.

Argentina failed to reach the heights of previous Copa America performances, but what they did do should have been enough to win against an opponent who only contributed toughness and physical stamina to advance to penalties. Argentina neither won nor lost during 120 minutes.

Gerardo Martino's team was the best at the Copa America...

Andres Guardado, Michael Bradley make up Copa America Worst XI

The crew answer your tweets about the United States and the upcoming match between Spain and Italy.

While Chile, Argentina and Colombia made up the bulk of the Copa America Centenario Best XI, let us not forget those who were not at their best in the month of June in the United States.

With that, we present the Copa America Centenario Worst XI.

GK Johnny Placide, Haiti -- It was a rough tournament for Haiti, especially in the 7-1 loss to Brazil in which Placide did his team no favors by sending outlet passes right to the feet of Brazilian players. Conceded 12 goals in three matches.

Messi's retirement among biggest takeaways from Copa Centenario

Argentina World Cup winner Mario Kempes joins SportsCenter to discuss Lionel Messi's decision to retire from international football.

Might Lionel Messi have been shaping up to retire from international football even if Argentina had won the Copa Centenario? It is a possibility. The criticisms of the Argentine FA that he said he would outline after the tournament, and the way he said he had been thinking about his decision, could add up to a plan of jumping ship whatever happened at MetLife Stadium.

If this is the case, then Argentina's penalty shootout defeat to Chile -- and Messi's missed kick -- probably make a rethink more...

Copa America Centenario a success despite setbacks, logistical concerns

Anthony Richardson recaps the Copa America Centenario final, including the most memorable moments from New Jersey.

Great ideas have a way of overcoming every obstacle in their path, and so it proved with the Copa America Centenario.

When the idea of a tournament for all of the Americas was first suggested, it almost made too much sense. Holding the tournament in the United States would allow CONMEBOL to tap into North American markets, while CONCACAF teams would have a chance to improve themselves by taking on South America's best. That the tournament would coincide with the 100th anniversary of the founding...

Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez lead way in Copa America Best XI

ESPN's Kevin Negandhi reports on the news of Lionel Messi's announcement of his retirement from international football.

The Copa America Centenario is done and dusted, with Chile claiming their second major trophy in as many years, a 4-2 victory on penalties over Argentina. There were a number of stalwart performances from players throughout the tournament, yet only a select number made the ESPN FC Copa America Best XI.

GK David Ospina, Colombia -- Arguably the toughest decision of them all. Ospina had a very good tournament from start to finish for Colombia, including a massive save to deny Peru a late winner...
