Belgium star man Eden Hazard has announced his retirement from international football at age 31.
Hazard has made 126 appearances for Belgium, scoring 33 goals since making his first appearance in 2008.
His decision comes days after Belgium were eliminated from the World Cup in the group stages.
Taking to his Instagram account, he said “A page turns today. Thank you for your love and unparalleled support.”
He also added that “Thank you for all this happiness since 2008. I have decided to put an end to my international career. The succession is ready. I will miss you.”
The 31-year-old was part of Belgian team that advanced to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Euro 2020, UEFA Euro 2016, and FIFA World Cup 2014.
He led Belgium to their best-ever third-place result at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, earning the Silver Ball as the second-best player of the competition.
