Arsenal centre-back Laurent Koscielny, who missed France’s World Cup triumph in Russia due to injury, said on Sunday his international career was “finished”. The 33-year-old had intended to retire from France duty following the tournament, but the defender was ruled out of Didier Deschamps’ squ-ad for the finals after rupturing his Achilles tendon in May. “The injury is one thing, the World Cup win is another. I think the victory certainly hurt me much more psychologically than my injury,” Koscielny told Canal Plus. “It’s over with Les Bleus. I will always be a France supporter but what is sure is that I will never put on the blue shirt again.” (AFP)
