ROME – Gonzalo Higuain leaves Argentina's national team. It was Pipita himself who announced this in an interview with Fox Sport Argentina. "My cycle ends here, I think that now many will be happy", his words full of bitterness.
"Someone – the attacker added – can stop worrying, thinking only about who will wear the national team shirt. I have already talked to coach Scaloni, I explained to him my reasons: with Argentina I think I have done good things, I am convinced that I have not failed. I played at the World Championships, I lost finals, so many people criticized me: they talk more about the goals I did wrong than about the goals I made, but I'm okay with my conscience, because I know I gave everything for Argentina's shirt .
Higuain refers to the criticisms often received (from the press and supporters) for a certain propensity to not be decisive in decisive matches (final and similar). He remembers having scored a decisive goal in the 2014 World Cup quarter-finals, but in the eyes of all will remain the glaring goal wrong in the final (later lost to Germany). Or the penalty missed against Chile in the final (then lost) of the America's Cup.
"I saw my family suffer a lot, to be in football you have to have a hard heart. I scored a goal against Belgium which allowed the national team to reach a World semi-final after 24 years, but people have forgotten it. Football is like that, many don't think about the fact that footballers are still human beings. I have been living with this for 15 years. "
Since 2009, Higuain has played 75 matches in the national team and scored 32 goals: 11 in qualifying matches, 7 in the America's Cup, 5 in the finals of the World Cup, 9 in the friendly. (Source Fox Sport ).
