Eden Hazard Retires From International Football

Belgium’s Eden Hazard has announced that he’s going to retire from international soccer following Belgium’s disappointing at the World Cup campaign in Qatar.

Belgium was crashed out of the tournament at the group level with the Real Madrid striker failing to make an impact in the team.

Hazard, 31, played in all 3 Group F games but did not score as Belgium beat Canada, lost to Morocco and played out a goalless draw with Croatia to come third.

“A page turns today… Thank you for your love. “Thank you for your unparalleled support. Thank you for all this happiness shared since 2008. Hazard said on his Instagram account on Wednesday December 7.

“I have decided to put an end to my international career. The succession is ready. I will miss you….#onestensemble.”

Hazard’s announcement comes after Roberto Martinez confirmed he would depart his role as Belgium head coach after crashing out of the World Cup.

“Mbappe Is Destined To Be Football’s Next Big Superstar”

Following the information, Belgium’s official Twitter account stated:

“All the best, captain. #MerciEden.”

Hazard captained his country in Qatar and has been a key player for Belgium in recent years.

He was one of their standout performers at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where he helped Belgium secure a third-place finish — the nation’s best performance at the finals.

Hazard made his international debut in 2008. He scored 33 times in 126 appearances for Belgium.
