Lucas Biglia has decided to end his international career and will be focusing solely on Milan from now on.
In perhaps the most exciting match of the tournament, Argentina lost 4-3 to France in the World Cup Round of 16 and have been eliminated from the competition.
After the match today, Biglia, who was involved in just one match in this World Cup – playing 54 minutes in the opening match against Iceland – announced that he is retiring from international football.
“Until the 2-1, apart from the complications of their speed, it seemed to be that we had a great game,” Biglia told Fox Sports. “This is football. We leave with great sadness, because it is the end of the road for some of us. I hope that those who follow can work with less pressure and take Argentina to where it deserves to be.
“It’s time for me to step aside, to be honest with myself, to say there is a new generation rich with talent and it’s time for them to take over.” The 32-year-old regista will now focus only on Milan.
