Veron was singled out by the crowd during the 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw with Chile on Saturday and was regularly booed throughout the game.
The Chelsea midfielder has been stung by the abuse he has suffered, but says that all the blame cannot be landed at his feet.
The former Manchester United man says that the squad must now get together and work harder to get their qualifying campaign back on track.
"I think that we don't have to be worried about what happened last Saturday because we showed in the first half that we can play really well," said Veron.
"But what I think is that we have to work much more so we don't repeat again what happened in the second half.
"We should have ended the match early by scoring all the chances we had.
"I think that this time the group has been all together in Buenos Aires and Caracas will help us to grow up as a group of people that all want the same thing."
Veron received lots of criticism during the match against Chile, with some flags displaying 'Veron is English', and 'Veron betrayed Argentina', but the player is distancing himself from the fan's opinions.
"I know that many supporters don't like the way I played in the last World Cup but I am going to show them that I give the best each time I wear the Argentina shirt.
"Everyone has the right to say what they want but it affects me, my only idea is to play and win."
