During his international career he also played for Argentina, and participated at the 1974 FIFA World Cup, where he scored three goals. His greatest achievement in football was being a member of the 1978 FIFA World Cup winning team (he came on as a substitute after 75 minutes in the World Cup Final and scored once in the infamous match against Peru). His career was cut short due to problems with alcoholism, with which he has been struggling for most of his life.
