The Sevilla and former Barca midfielder has called time on his international career.

“Saying goodbye to the Croatian national team is the most difficult decision in my career, but I felt that this was the moment when I had to break away and make that decision,” said Rakitic in a social media post from the Croatian NT.

“I enjoyed every game I played for my homeland, and unforgettable moments from the World Cup will remain among my favourites.

“I am convinced that we still have a great team with a bright future ahead. I wish my friends and teammates all the luck in the world for the upcoming challenges, and in me they will have the biggest fan.”
