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."
