    A legend but retiring is the right decision, he looked very behind the pace of things this tournament but his commitment and fight is always 100% no matter what.

    Should have retired after Copa. He was horrendous in this tournament!

    You could see how important Masche is for Argentina but unfortunately he could not perform in every game. Also made mistakes that are unusual for him.

    Worst player of the tournament... slow awful & I don’t know why he always try to act like if he is a great playmaker!!!! Even at Barcelona he was awful but so licky to play in a system that won’t expose him ....biggest win for Argentina that he finally will disappear

    he has the right spirit and fight, the guy has always been a warrior but sadly his body disagrees now. poor WC for him but Argentina should be producing better players instead of relying on grandpa Masch

    It was his last WC game, what's the point of shitting on him now?

    Legend. Wish him all the best.

    The guy basically retired without ever getting it how to evade midfield pressure by movement or play penetrative passes between the lines. Even the likes of Matić or Obi Mikel have more composure on the ball.

    I won't remember him as a truly elite midfielder.

    On top of that, he's an emotional trainwreck of a character. You can actually see how his emotions fuck him up when the going gets tough, and you'd expect him to keep his cool.

    I love Masch and what he's done for us, that was than though - but Argentina should have played with about anybody else and they would have done better.

    Legend both for barça and Agentina (most caped player) but retiring now is the right choice (maybe even overdue).

    Legend. He gave his all imo. It is Coach's fault to rely on him at this age. But then again they don't have many alternatives.

    Read a couple of reports he's heading back to River plate in 2019.
