Robben Ends International Career

Netherlands captain Arjen Robben has retired from international football after his side missed out on a place at next summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Robben scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Sweden – but they were not enough for the Dutch to reach the play-offs.

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.
