I got the call from Roy and agree the England team should be about the young players. I think it best I retire from the England team now.

We have a great manager and team and I wish them only success. I will be supporting them like a true fan. Thanks to everyone for everything

Like me or not, trust me it’s hurt me to stop playing for my country proud and honoured.

Appearances : 107
Won : 63
