Sergio Busquets, the legendary midfielder, has announced his retirement from the Spanish national team at the age of 34.
Sergio Busquets announces international football retirement from Spanish National Team
Despite playing a relatively young lineup, La Roja was considered one of the favorites to win the FIFA World Cup. Therefore, Spain’s elimination at the hands of Morocco was always going to have significant ramifications.
However, after the team was eliminated in the Round of 16, Luis Enrique resigned as head coach without delay.
Sergio Busquets appears to have announced his retirement from international competition as well, which could be a further setback for the Spanish national team.
As a result, Busquets’ international career has come to an end after 143 appearances for La Roja. The 34-year-old was a member of Spain’s World Cup-winning squad in 2010. In total, he has appeared in 17 World Cup matches.
With 143 appearances, Busquets is Spain’s third-highest all-time appearance maker. Only Iker Casillas (167) and Sergio Ramos (167) of Real Madrid are ahead of him (180).
Following his retirement from international duty, the defensive midfielder will concentrate on his club career. However, with his current contract at Camp Nou expiring at the end of the season, it is unclear whether Busquets will continue to play for Barcelona the following season.
