Real Madrid star Eden Hazard has retired after Belgium’s disappointing group stage exit at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. He retires having played 126 times for the Belgian Red Devils.
“The succession is ready” he posted, signalling the end of the so-called golden generation.
The 31-year-old scored 33 goals since his debut at 17 years age and he was part of the team that finished third at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Via Instagram, Eden Hazard posted:
“A page turns today… Thank you for your love. Thank you for your unparalleled support. Thank you for all this happiness shared since 2008.
“I have decided to put an end to my international career. The succession is ready. I will miss you.”
The 2022 tournament saw Belgium beat Canada in their opening game but then loss to Morocco, before a 0-0 draw with Croatia saw them being knocked out prematurely.
