Hazard said in his statement 'Thank you for your unparalleled support. Thank you for all the joyful moments we have shared since 2008.

'Today I decided to put an end to my career as an international. The next generation is ready. I'm going to miss you so much.'

After Belgium suffered a humiliating group stage exit, Hazard will feel justified in his decision to call time. He will now focus on getting his club career back on track after having a torrid time in recent years, especially after he left Chelsea to move to Real Madrid
