Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain has brought an end to his Argentina career after announcing he has retired from international football.

Higuain played 75 times for his country, scoring 31 goals in the process, putting him sixth in their list of all-time leading scorers.

He played at three World Cups, including the 2018 edition, while he was also a part of the squads for the Copa America tournaments in 2011, 2015 and 2016.

However, for many his legacy on the international stage will be costly misses, as he was guilty of spurning fine opportunities in the finals of the 2014 World Cup and 2015 and 2016 Copa America editions.

Higuain eluded to that in his announcement, hitting back at those who branded Argentina “failures” for losing finals in three successive years.

“For the joy of many, my time in the national team is done,” he told Fox Sports Argentina.
