Raphael Varane has been a permanent fixture in Didier Deschamps' squad for years and, at 29 years of age, everything pointed to the fact that he had plenty of energy left in him. However, the centre-back's international career has come to an end sooner than expected.
According to 'Le Parisien', the current Manchester United defender wants to focus fully on club football due to his ongoing injuries. Shortly afterwards, the French national team officially announced it.
"I've been thinking about it for a few months now and I've decided it's the right time for me to retire from the national team," he said on his personal Instagram account.
In addition, the French footballer posted in some Instagram stories of the aforementioned social network the best moments lived with France.
