Denmark lost to Croatia on penalties in a round of 16 match on Sunday and were eliminated from the World Cup.

"The 2018 FIFA World Cup was my last one with the national team. Thank you, players, coaches, managers and fans, for the many good years... I've done all I could," Kvist posted on his Facebook page.

The 33-year-old started for Denmark in their first World Cup match against Peru, which they won 1-0 on June 16, but sustained an injury, breaking two ribs and puncturing his lung, and was substituted in the first half.

He returned to the team after receiving medical assistance, but did not play anymore. The Copenhagen midfielder netted two goals in 81 appearances  for Denmark.

According to the Associated Press news agency, Krohn-Deli also announced his retirement from the national team following their defeat to Croatia. The 35-year-old, who plays for Spanish side Deportivo de La Coruna, was capped for Denmark 59 times scoring six goals.
