Algeria : Antar Yahia quits international football


The player who has amassed 53 caps to his name stated that he wanted the leave space for young talents who could take Algeria to higher heights.

“It was a very difficult decision that I thought about for a long time but at some point you need to know how to leave and let a new generation build something beautiful in the national team,” he explained in a statement posted on the Algerian Football Federation’s (FAF) official website. “It’s a decision that hurts my heart because I have a big love story with the national team and the Algerian public with whom I’ve shared emotional moments throughout my international career.”
