Jose Pekerman said Friday that he won't coach Argentina any more following the World Cup quarter-final loss to Germany on penalties.
"I think the cycle is over. I'm sure I'm not going to continue, " Pekerman said after the Germany-Argentina quarterfinal which ended 1-1 after extra time.
"It was a very exciting match. We also played like favorites and gave our best although we lost," Pekerman said.
Germany beat Argentina 4-2 on penalties. German goalkeeper Jens Lehmann denied two spot shots from Argentine defender Roberto Ayala and midfielder Esteban Cambiasso.
"The penalties were a consequence of a very even match. It's a shame for Argentina who played very well in the whole championship," he added.
