Angel Di Maria set to retire from the national team after Copa America 2024

According to ESPN Argentina, Angel Di Maria reportedly plans to retire from Argentina’s national team duties after the 2024 Copa America.

The winger displayed sensational form during the Qatar World Cup and played a crucial role in the squad’s historic victory, securing their third global title after a 36-year drought.

He scored in the final against France and significantly impacted the pitch throughout the 120 minutes.

Di Maria also contributed goals in the 2021 Copa America final victory against Brazil and the 2022 Finalissima triumph against Italy, solidifying his legacy in the Albiceleste jersey.

Cesar Luis Menotti, the manager who guided Argentina to their first World Cup title in 1978, believes that El Fideo should be regarded alongside the likes of Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona, and Mario Kempes.

Di Maria has had a remarkable international career, having earned 132 caps and scoring 29 goals since his debut in a World Cup qualifier against Paraguay in 2008.
