Carlos Tevez has admitted criticism directed at Argentina's players led to him considering quitting international football.
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 of his 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?''
