font size    

Brazilian Roberto Carlos has retired from international soccer.

After 10 years and 128 caps the Real Madrid defender is quitting to allow young talent to come through, he said on his official Web site on Monday.

"On the Selecao (Brazilian national squad) my story has ended," Carlos said.

"I want to open space for new blood. I hope I can give this number six jersey to someone who might carry on this victorious history."

The 33-year-old Carlos was instrumental to the team that won the 2002 World Cup co-hosted by South Korea and Japan.

Favorites to retain the World Cup in Germany, Brazil suffered a quarter-final defeat to France on Saturday.
