Kaizer Chiefs ace Khama Billiat has announced a rather unexpected decision to close the chapter on his international career with Zimbabwe.
The attacking midfielder uncovered the decision with an emotional message via social media late on Monday. The 31-year-old's move also follows after the Warriors' failed pursuit to qualify for the FIFA 2022 World Cup.
Billiat said it is time to open the path for newer Zimbabwean talent to shine on the international stage - after 10 years of wearing the famous green Warriors jersey.
The journey included 15 goals and 41 appearances.
Meanwhile, Billiat is now looking ahead to Chiefs' trip to the KwaZulu Natal midlands to battle Maritzburg United on Sunday.
