End game: Tevez is considering his Argentina future

Argentina qualified for the World Cup this week with a 1-0 win over Uruguay,prompting coach Diego Maradona to respond to a period of prolonged criticism ofhis tenure with some choice words in his post-match questioning.

FIFA have confirmed they will be looking into the incident and if found guilty, they could present Maradona with a five-match ban.

And Manchester City's Tevez admits the majority of time international football does not put a smile on his face.

The former Manchester United and West Ham striker said: 'When I play for Argentina I spend more time suffering than enjoying myself. The fans insulted us, the journalists criticised everything.

'Sometimes I think about quitting the national team. Why should I come to Argentina and have a bad time?'
