Robben Retires From International Football

Dutch winger Arjen Robben has decided to retire from international football.
He scored both goals for the Oranje as he captained his side to a 2-0 victory over Sweden in the final matchday of UEFA World Cup qualification.

While the result brought the Netherlands level on points with Sweden for the play-off places, Robben and the Dutch lost the tie-breaker to the Swedes due to an inferior goal difference.
The Bayern Munich forward said: "It hasn't been an easy decision but I am 33 and now must give my full focus to my club."
Robben made his debut in April 2003 and won 96 caps, scoring 37 times.
He is joint fourth on the Netherlands' all-time goalscorer list, level with former Arsenal forward Dennis Bergkamp.

Robben was part of the squads which finished third at the 2014 World Cup and lost the 2010 final to Spain.
