ROBBEN RETIRES FROM INTERNATIONAL DUTY
Amsterdam, Netherlands - Netherlands captain Arjen Robben signalled the end of his international career on Tuesday after his country failed to reach the 2018 World Cup finals.
The Bayern Munich star signed off by scoring both goals against Sweden after a desperately disappointing qualifying campaign.
The 33 year old Robben scored 37 times in 96 appearances for the Netherlands and helped it reach the 2010 World Cup final where it lost.
"Fourteen years, it's beautiful, magnificent even," said Robben, who made his international debut against Portugal in April 2003. "I will always remember the 2010 World Cup and 2014. Those are my best memories. During those two competitions we formed a real team."
