In a shocking turn of events, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and FC Barcelona player, Javier Mascherano have also announced they are calling time on their international careers.
The exodus comes after the Argentines suffered another excruciating Copa America defeat. This made it the second consecutive year Chile had beaten Argentina on penalties in the final.
Recall that Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi who was in tears after Chile clinched the title was the first to announce his decision to exit the national team and now Mascherano and Aguero have decided to follow suit.
