Uncapped Sylvain Distin 'Retires' from International Duty

Sean Swaby@seanswabyUK Staff WriterMay 14, 2014

It didn't quite spawn as much fanfare as Samir Nasri's omission from France's World Cup squad, but Everton man Sylvain Distin quietly stepped away from Les Bleus after not being called up. 

The 36-year-old Frenchman has never been capped. 

I m retiring from France team. It was a wonderful experience and after a record of #0 cap it's time to say goodbye and focus on my club 😜
