Lionel Messi says he's quitting Argentina's national team.
Argentina and Messi lost a final for the third year in a row, with Chile winning the Copa America 4-2 on penalty kicks following a 0-0 tie Sunday night.
His nation's captain and career scoring leader with 55 goals in 113 international appearances, Messi sent Argentina's first penalty kick over the crossbar.
"The national team is over for me," Messi told the Argentine network TyC Sports. "It's been four finals, it's not meant for me. I tried. It was the thing I wanted the most, but I couldn't get it, so I think it's over."

Pope Francis says gays — and all the other people the church has marginalized, such as the poor and the exploited — deserve an apology.
Francis was asked Sunday en route home from Armenia if he agreed with one of his top advisers, German Cardinal Reinhard Marx, who told a conference in Dublin in the days after the deadly Orlando gay club attack that the church owes an apology to gays for having marginalized them.
Francis responded with a variation of his famous "Who am I to judge?" comment and a repetition of church teaching that gays must not be discriminated against but treated with respect.
A group of Cuban migrants who appeared to be armed with machetes reached the shore Florida's Hollywood Beach on Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
According to Hollywood police, 11 Cuban migrants landed on Hollywood Beach near the 6000 block of North Ocean Drive around 6:20 p.m.
One of the migrants, Yoandy Alonoso Figueredo, said the trip lasted eight days and the group went without food and water for four. He said the sight of the coastline brought them hope.
Coast Guard officials tried to divert the migrants' boat before it reached Hollywood Beach. Officials said the migrants appeared to be armed with machetes and large knives and were threatening to harm themselves if their boat was stopped.

The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $363 million after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night.
The numbers are 6, 13, 21, 49, 50 plus the Mega Ball 10.
The prize grew to $363 million since no winning tickets were selected last Friday night. The jackpot rolled again to an estimated $363 million ($244 million cash) -- the sixth largest jackpot in Mega Millions history -- for the next drawing on Friday, June 24.
This is the biggest jackpot Mega Millions has offered since March 18, 2014, when two tickets in Florida and Maryland shared a $414 million prize.
An online petition calling for a second referendum on Britain’s exit from the European Union has received more than 3 million signatures, NBC News reported.
The petition calls for the government to implement a rule stating there should be another referendum if either camp won less than 60 percent of the vote with less than 75 percent voter turnout. The "Leave" campaign had racked up 17.4 million votes — compared to 16.1 million backing the status quo — giving "Leave" 51.9 percent of the ballot.
The online petition site hosted by the House of Commons website crashed Friday because of unprecedented interest in the measure. The person behind the petition was, in fact, in favor of the so-called Brexit.
Even though it has reached a record number of people to support it, the petition is not expected to result in a EU reversal.

Donald Trump's campaign chair is "confident" Trump's run for president is not behind Hillary Clinton's despite lagging fundraising totals and the recent removal of a top campaign leader.
During an interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press” Sunday, Paul Manafort told Chuck Todd the campaign is “getting organized” and that the team is “now integrated with the Republican National Committee.”
The campaign endured scrutiny this week for a trip made to a Trump-owned golf course in Scotland amid the United Kingdom’s “Brexit” vote. Manafort defended the decision not to call off the trip, saying supporters are attracted to Trump because he is an international businessman. He called attacks on the trip “"tone deafness of the Hillary Clinton campaign."
Manafort formally took over the helm of the campaign after Corey Lewandowski was fired Monday. He’s advised presidential campaigns of Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

At least six people were stabbed and others were struck by chunks of thrown concrete when a white nationalist group clashed with counter-protesters at the California state Capitol in Sacramento on Sunday.
Officials said a total of 10 people were hospitalized, some with "critical trauma" stab wounds. All were expected to survive, according to the Sacramento Police Department. Officers said people on both sides of the fight were stabbed.
A spokeswoman from UC Davis Medical Center said it was treating eight people with injuries related to the rally. Their conditions ranged from "good to critical" and included "various types of trauma," she said.
Several people were seen walking through the crowd with bloodied faces, while counter-protesters chanted "get off our streets" at the supremacists. A news reporter and photographer were reportedly injured in the mayhem.
The Supreme Court is set to close out its current term with opinions Monday in three remaining cases after a flurry of decisions last week.
It's expected to be the justices' final meeting before they disperse on their summer breaks.
The last three cases concern regulation of Texas abortion clinics, the public corruption conviction of former Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia and a federal law that seeks to keep guns out of the hands of people convicted of domestic violence.
Treasury chief George Osborne sought to calm nerves in the markets Monday, as investors worried about the consequences of Britain leaving the European Union.
In his first public appearance since the vote to leave the bloc Thursday, Osborne tried to reassure markets shaken by the result. He calmly underscored that Britain's economy is as strong as it could be to face the challenge of the international reaction, and that the economy is in a far better position than it was at the start of the 2008 financial crisis.
"It will not be plain sailing in the days ahead," he said, but added that the U.K. was "equipped for whatever happens."
Voters in the United Kingdom have decided to leave the European Union after a...
