Trio retire from Les Bleus

After the loss to Italy in the final game of Euro 2008,French trio of Sagnol,Thuram and Makelele have said "Au Revoir" to international game.

France went down to Italy 2-0 in Zurich and failed to progress to the next stage in the group of death with a disppointing campaign which saw 1 goal scored and 6 conceded for the French side who lacked the cutting edge to win at the highest level.
Of the three players only Makelele took to the field in the final game with the other two only to find comfortable space on the bench.

Thuram is out of contract after he was released from Barcelona.Sagnol didn't have a great season with German champions,Bayern Munich.Makelele is currently under contract at Chelsea.

Patrick Viera and Gregory Coupet had also considered retirement but have said nothing to confirm the reports,yet.Patrick Viera failed to take to the field in any of the games due to injury.
What next for the Les Bleus would be interesting..
