"Congratulations, Carlos Tevez, you're not going to the World Cup, so what are you going to do next?" 

"I'm going to Disney World!" 

OK, so the above conversation didn't actually happen. But nonetheless, Juventus frontman and former Argentina striker isn't planning on going to Brazil to watch his Argentina side compete in the World Cup. In fact, he's not going to even watch the World Cup.

Instead, he's going to Disney World. 

In spite of his recent fine run of form (18 goals for Juve), the 29-year-old hasn't featured for Argentina since 2011 and has admitted that watching the national team compete without him is tough to do. 

In a recent interview with (via ITV), Tevez opened up about what he'll be doing during this summer's tournament. 

I don't think I will watch my national team play at the World Cup. I've already bought tickets to go with my wife and my three children to Disney World. 

They deserve that trip and I have very clear in my mind where my place is. 

I will nevertheless be Argentina's No. 1 fan. My candidates for the title are Argentina, Brazil and Germany in that order. 

I nevertheless don't think I will be able to watch the games because that would make me very nervous and be nostalgic.
