Vidal Says He Will RETIRE From International Football After WC 2018

Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal has announced his retirement from international football after the upcoming 2018 World Cup campaign in Russia.

He wrote: Sorry Chile for these two losses!" the 30-year-old wrote on Instagram following Chile's defeat against Bolivia.

"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!!!"
Chile are now sixth in the CONMEBOL standings with only two games left, one point behind fifth placed Argentina and two behind fourth placed Peru. Playoffs could be the country's only chance of reaching next summer's World Cup in Russia.
