The leader of the national team of Chile completed an international career

Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal has quashed suggestions that he has called time on his worldwide career - claiming in the wake of their failure to reach next year's World Cup that he would "never abandon" his country.

- Arturo Vidal has backtracks on his decision to retire from worldwide football.

"Every time I'm called, I'll be available to the national team", the 30-year-old said on Twitter.

He announced the retirement in an emotional post on social media, "Thank you lads, for everything, for all these years together. for teaching me and for showing a country that with effort and work anything is possible in life", Vidal wrote in Spanish on Twitter. Chile is a team of warriors, I feel proud to belong to this squad.

'This is a very hard time. And I will not abandon them.

Vidal who joined Bayern Munich from Juventus, won the 2015 and 2016 Copa America, beating Argentina on penalties in both occasions.

The Chileans finished level on points with Peru in the South American qualifying table but missed out on goal difference.

Vidal, 30, made his worldwide debut back in February 2007 and has gone on to make 95 appearances for Chile, netting 23 goals.

Juan Antonio Pizzi also announced his departure from his role as Chile's manager after last night's disappointment.
