Vidal plans to retire from internationals after World Cup

6 September 2017 03:33

Arturo Vidal is set to retire after the 2018 World Cup in Russia after revealing his future international plans.

Vidal already appeared to hint at international retirement following Chile’s shock 3-0 loss to Paraguay in World Cup qualifying last week.

And the 30-year-old midfielder – veteran of 97 caps – discussed his future again after Chile suffered a 1-0 defeat in Bolivia in CONMEBOL action on Tuesday.

The result left Chile in sixth position – outside the play-off spot by a point.

In an Instagram post afterwards, Vidal wrote: “Sorry Chile for these two losses! We put everything in the field but we couldn’t win.

“We will continue fighting!!! Two matches and the World Cup is what I have left, thanks for so much affection in all these years!!!”

Perdón Chile por estás 2 derrotas!! Dejamos todo en el campo pero no se pudo. Seguiremos peleando!!! 2 partidos y el mundial me quedan, gracias por tanto cariño en todos estos años!!!
