The South America nation were bundled out of the World Cup at the last-16 stage after losing 4-3 to France on Saturday.

As a result, Javier Mascherano was the first player to announce his retirement shortly after the clash.

"Personally, for me now it's over. From now on I'm just one more Argentina fan." Mascherano told DeportTV.

Hours later, AC Milan's Lucas Biglia confirmed that he will also no longer be playing international football for La Albiceleste.

"This is football. We leave with great sadness, because it is the end of the road for some of us. I hope that those who follow can work with less pressure and take Argentina to where it deserves to be," Biglia told Fox Sports.

"It’s time for me to step aside, to be honest with myself, to say there is a new generation rich with talent and it is time for them to take over."

kopong T all those that you have mentioned failed to lift the moral of other players, they are all ordinary players nd also ageing bunch of useless individuals. look at England like costadin papic has said young is best it's time for Argentina nd Portugal to forget about those ageing superstars and focus on youngsters. if you look at England they have the young squad nd France also putted their trust of the likes of mbappe, so Argentina should forget about winning the world cup now because they worship individuals at the expense of the nation. they played kak that's it and they didn't even deserve to be on the last 16

Those who think this is the worst Argentine generation of all time they need to remember Crespo's generation that couldn't make it past the group stages in 2002.
