With 183 caps for France, Camille Abily retires from International football

One of the most recognisable names in women’s football, a legend, Camille Abily has announced her retirement from international football.

Camille’s announcement comes just after France’s exit to England from the UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 Championship at the quarter-final stage.

Roughly translated:

How hard it is to find words !!!
Many feelings combine a huge pride, a feeling of unfinished, disappointment, frustration but also that good moments spent during these 16 years: crying well on but enormously of happiness and memories has never serious in my Heart !!!!
Thank you to all my teammates present and passess and to all my coaches! And a huge thank you for all your messages and support !!!!
The Blue page turns but the book does not close. I hope to write a nice end with my club …
Thanks again to all

Among Abily’s many attributes as a footballer, she may be most fondly remembered on the international stage for her free-kicks. Some spectacular and some that play such an important role for France, like most recently her free-kick in the final minutes of the game against Switzerland, that kept France’s Euro 2017 dream alive.

Thank you Camille Abily for all you have done on the international women’s football scene, we will continue to follow and enjoy your football career at club level.
