France goalkeeper Gregory Coupet has revealed he may retire from football after Les Bleus´ upcoming Euro 2008 game with Italy.

The 35-year-old has already told his club Lyon that he does not intend to stay with them next year, and has said that he will only continue his career with a club outside of France.

When asked if he might retire from the game altogether following the Austria and Switzerland tournament he replied: "Honestly I don´t know. I only want to think about this after the European Championships. But I´ll have to think about it (retirement). Therefore it´s true that, if we go out, the game against Italy could be my last."
