31-year-old Chelsea striker, Gonzalo Higuain announced the plan to cease football at the international level with Argentina.
Explaining his decision in an interview with Fox Sports, Higuain said: ‘My time with Argentina is over. Thinking things through in-depth, my time is up.
‘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, who has scored three goals in 10 appearances since joining Chelsea towards the end of January, added: ‘I’m fully focused on my commitment to Chelsea.
‘The Premier League is amazing and I really want to enjoy it. It’s very competitive indeed.’
