Football | David McGoldrick retires from international football

Republic of Ireland striker David McGoldrick has announced his retirement from international football.

According to the FAI, the 32-year-old has "decided to retire from international football to concentrate on his club career and family".

McGoldrick has won 14 caps for the Boys in Green since making his senior international debut in 2014, and emerged as a key forward in Mick McCarthy's second spell as manager.

'Didzy' was also named as the FAI Senior Men's Player of the Year in August 2020.

The Sheffield United forward missed the recent internationals against Wales and Finland through injury, but was expected to be named in Stephen Kenny's forthcoming squad.

McGoldrick scored his only international goal in a 1-1 draw against Switzerland in a UEFA 2020 European Championships qualifier in September 2019.
