Higuain: Why I Retired From Argentina

Gonzalo Higuain, who rejected a chance to represent France, has explained why he decided to retire from international football.
 
 
The 31-year-old has not featured for Albieceleste since a World Cup group stage win over Nigeria in Russia last year.
 
Higuain received widespread criticism for failing to replicate his club form in big on the international stage.
 
However, the forward has now decided to hang up his boots with Argentina, as he wants to spend more time with his family.
 
"My time with Argentina is over. Thinking things through in depth, my time is up," Higuain told Fox, according to Sports Mole.
 
"To the delight of many, now I will only look at it from the outside. I have spoken to (manager Lionel) Scaloni and told him my point of view.
 
"I've made the decision because I want to enjoy my family, I want to spend time with my daughter, and at the same time, I feel that I gave my country everything I could."
 
 
Higuain went on to make 75 appearances for the national side, scoring 31 goals which places at sixth on the country's all-time top scorer charts.
