Ex-Chelsea Star confirms the retirement in international football follow his team exit in world Cup

Despite having the golden generation in their squad, Belgium was eliminated in the group stages of the World Cup 2022. Belgium finished third in the last World Cup in 2018, but not this time.

Players are getting older, and Kevin de Bruyne was correct in his assessment of Belgium's slim chances of winning the World Cup. We may be missing a number of high-profile players in the upcoming World Cup, including Kevin De Bruyne, and Eden Hazard, who has already announced his retirement from international football. Hazard 31 posted on his social media accounts, "A page turns today," he wrote. "I appreciate your love. Thank you for your unwavering support. Thank you for all the joy you've brought me since 2008."

"I have decided to end my international career," he said later. The succession is complete. "I'm going to miss you." The former Chelsea winger made his international debut for Belgium at the age of 17 in 2008 and will retire with 126 international caps, 33 goals, 36 assists, and 56 times captaining the team.
