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.
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.’
