Kaizer Chiefs star Khama Billiat retires from international soccer

Khama Billiat has announced his retirement from international soccer with immediate effect. He took to social media to confirm he will be hanging up his boots following this weekend’s Fifa 2022 World Cup Qualifiers.

“Fellow Zimbabweans” – the Kaizer Chiefs star titled his open retirement letter.

“It was all a dream. When I was young, I always dreamt of representing the country, playing for the national team. The dream which seemed far-fetched for a young Khama in Mufakose came when I least expected it. The first day I donned the Warriors badge, I vowed to enjoy myself and always lift the country’s spirits.”

“Scoring a goal at the Africa Cup of Nations finals is one moment I still relive in my mind even up to date. It is one of the many special moments I have experienced wearing the coveted yellow jersey. The feeling of scoring in a packed stadium for your nation is inexplicable. I have met so many teammates, coaches at the national team and I appreciate every relationship I have built along the way. By playing for the Warriors, I have improved immensely as a player it is an opportunity I will forever cherish.” the Kaizer Chiefs star continued.

“However, every story no matter how beautiful has an ending. This is probably the heaviest decision I have ever had to take in my life, but it is a decision I make with a patriotic heart. Like those who had to pave way for our generation of Warriors stars to emerge, I have decided to retire from international football. I believe it is now time for me to pave way for new talent to blossom and serve the country in the same way that I did, or even better.” the Kaizer Chiefs star added.

“I will forever be indebted to those who took a chance on me and moulded me into the international player I grew to become. Thank you Zimbabwe for supporting me and my teammates, for showing love with each outing. God bless you.

“Khama Billiat” – The Kaizer Chiefs star signed off.

Kaizer Chiefs star Khama Billiat made over 45 appearances for the Zimbabwean national team. While it remains to be confirmed at the current moment, it does look like he will not participate in the upcoming AFCON that will take place in Cameroon early next year for the Warriors.
