Mascherano Retires From International Football

Javier Mascherano has brought the curtain down on a record-breaking career with Argentina, with the 34-year-old having announced his international retirement.

A long-serving member of the Albiceleste set-up has opted to walk away after suffering a last-16 exit from World Cup 2018.

With France having prevailed in a thrilling seven-goal contest on Russian soil, Argentina are once again having to look to the future.

Mascherano will form no part of those plans, with the country’s all-time leading appearance maker set to become a supporter of the national team after 147 caps.

He told TyC Sport after a disappointing outing against France: “It’s time to say goodbye. From now on, I’m a fan.

“It’s all over for me. I hope these guys can accomplish something in the future.”
