The torrential rains that poured down on Buenos Aires, the capital and largest city of Argentina on Saturday, July 2nd did not deter more than 100,000 of the soccer legend, Lionel Messi’s fans, who rallied to convince the Barcelona talisman to continue playing for Argentina.

Messi is yet to respond to the barrage of pleas triggered after the 29 year-old announced his retirement following his side’s painful Copa America final loss to Chile.
