Eden Hazard announces international retirement


At the age of 31, playmaker Eden Hazard of Belgium and Real Madrid announced his retirement from international competition.

At the age of 17, Hazard, an attacking midfielder or winger, made his Belgium debut. He went on to earn 126 caps and score 33 goals.

His decision comes after Belgium were knocked out of the World Cup in the group stages.

"A page turns today," said the Real Madrid player. "Thank you for your love and for your unparalleled support."

He added on social media: "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."

He entered the game as a substitute against Luxembourg to make his debut and become the eighth-youngest player for his nation.

After that, he played in three World Cups, two European Championships, and led the team 56 times.

For an estimated £150 million, Hazard transferred from Chelsea to Real Madrid in 2019.

During his seven years at Stamford Bridge, he won the Europa League twice, the FA Cup once, the EFL Cup once, and the Premier League twice.

He has played just six times for Carlo Ancelotti's club so far this year.
