Baros retires from internationals

Czech Republic striker Milan Baros has announced his retirement from the national team, following his side’s 1-0 defeat to Portugal in the Euro 2012 quarter-final stage.

Baros, 30, is the second highest scorer in his country’s history with 41 goals in 93 games, behind only former strike partner Jan Koller.

The Galatasaray forward has chosen, though, to continue his career at club level only, following a disappointing campaign at this year’s tournament.

"He only said it to the guys in the locker room, I can't quote him," Czech team spokesman Jaroslav Kolar told reporters.

"The other players and the coach reacted with big applause that lasted about five minutes. It was pretty long and it was pretty emotional.”

Baros’ finest hour for his country came at Euro 2004, when he scored five times to win the Golden Boot award as the tournament’s top-scorer.
