Dhorasoo calls time on France career

August 08, 2006 16:46 IST

Paris St Germain midfielder Vikash Dhorasoo said on Tuesday he no longer wants to play for France.

Dhorasoo, 32, earned the last of his 18 caps as a late second-half substitute in the 1-1 draw against South Korea during the World Cup finals in Germany.

"If you ask me if I'm still interested to play for France I'll answer you that I'm not," Dhorasso said in an interview run by French daily Le Parisien.

"I'm not interested in playing for Les Bleus anymore. It's over. That's it," he said.

Dhorasoo, who made his international debut in March 1999, became a regular first choice under coach Raymond Domenech but was overlooked at the World Cup finals.
