His team mates have constantly let him down as far as I'm concerned. Higuain and Aguero in particular.
He won't be retiring anyway, what he said was said in the heat of the moment when he was clearly very emotional. He looked like a broken man after the match.
He will have some time to think about this and will be available for selection again. He will realise that if he quits now he may regret it when he's older.
And actually passed?
