Emile Heskey has brought his international career to an end after winning 62 caps for his country over an 11-year period.
The Aston Villa forward featured in all four of England’s South Africa 2010 games, starting the first two against the United States and Algeria.
The 32-year-old, who made his debut in April 1999 against Hungary, represented his country at two European championships and two World Cups and scored seven times in a Three Lions shirt.
“I have enjoyed every moment of my England career and worn the shirt with pride every time I have been fortunate enough to have been selected,” said Heskey. “I would like to thank every manager I have played under, everyone at The FA and the fans for all their support over the years. I wish the management team and the playing squad all the best for the future.”
