Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi’s sudden retirement from International football at such an early age left his fans disheartened and they surely are expecting his comeback.
As always, Twitterati took this way ahead by comparing Messi’s retirement with Shahid Afridi’s retirement followed by a comeback.
Shahid Afridi, the Boom-Boom of cricket, who has played 27 Tests, 398 ODIs and 96 T20Is for the ‘Men in Green’ took retirement from International cricket but was seen playing a couple of times. This started memes and trolls flooding Twitter about Messi’s retirement.
This is Afridi.
Afridi announces his retirement.
Afridi announces his comeback.
Afridi is awesome.
Be like Afridi.

On asking Messi, if he will return.
Reporter: “Will you reconsider your decision?”
Messi: “No. I’m Not Shahid Afridi.” 😉#LionelMessi

And the age comment!
Messi has retired at the age of 29, That’s the age when Afridi was 17 years old.

Either he is giving respect to Messi or insulting Afridi!
Wanna compare Messi’s retirement with Afridi’s but don’t wanna disrespect Messi
