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

The leader of the national team of Chile completed an global career”

Arturo Vidal produced a 180- degree turn on Wednesday insisting he was a "warrior" who would "never abandon" Chile, just hours after seemingly announcing his retirement.

But the 30-year-old later took to Twitter to clear up the confusion over his worldwide future.

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.

But less than 24 hours later, Vidal was back on Twitter pledging allegiance to his country as long as he's wanted. And I will not abandon it [the team].

That failure went down as a huge shock considering Chile's back-to-back Copa America titles in 2015 and 2016, and Vidal was emotional after the match as he appeared to quit, saying "thank you for everything" in an interview.

Chile, who were beaten by Brazil in the round of 16 at both the 2010 and 2014 World Cups, were soundly beaten again in Sao Paulo on Tuesday.

In the final round of the Chileans on the road with the score 0:3 lost to Brazil and fell to a final sixth place in the standings, which did not allow them to get at least in the play-offs.

The loss has hit a talented Chile squad hard, with manager Pizzi announcing his resignation and Vidal following that up with talks of retirement.
