Sergio Aguero says that he is considering following Lionel Messi into international retirement.
Messi made his own announcement after Argentina had lost to Chile on penalties in the Copa America final, and Aguero admits that other players in the squad are having similar thoughts.
“The likelihood is that Messi is not the only one that will leave the national team,” Aguero told Ole newspaper.
“There are several players like me that are evaluating whether or not to continue.
“One doesn’t want to think about it but at times, there are things that happen and the thought (of retiring) comes into your mind.
“Afterwards, it’s difficult to get it out.”
Aguero also spoke about Lionel Messi’s international retirement, announced after the game.
“Unfortunately, the one that leaves most affected is Leo Messi after his penalty miss,” Aguero said.
“This is the worst that I’ve seen him in the changing room.
“We are all affected and we will try to think about something else and move forward. Again, luck was not on our side.”
