Former Barça player Ivan Rakitic retired internationally after 106 caps for the Croatian national team, including a World Cup final lost in 2018 against France. “I felt this was the moment when I had to take a break and make this decision. I enjoyed every game I played for my homeland, the unforgettable moments of the World Cup will remain among my favorites.” , said the midfielder in a statement released by his federation. As a reminder, Rakitic has just returned to Sevilla FC, six years after leaving the Andalusian club for Barça. Note that the Croatian coach Zlatko Dalic has unveiled his list for the next matches of his selection, including the reception of the France team on October 14.
