David Villa, Spain's all-time leading scorer, said this World Cup will be his last event with the national team.
The striker told Spanish TV Cuatro, "I don't want to say it, but yes, obviously at the World Cup I will be playing my last games with the selection given my age, my level of performance, and everything I have given the team. It is time."
Villa, 32, has scored 56 goals for Spain and helped it win the 2008 European Championship and the 2010 World Cup.
On Monday, Villa signed a three-year deal with New York City FC, becoming the first player to join the expansion Major League Soccer team.
Villa helped Atletico Madrid win the Spanish league this season. He also won the 2011 Champions League with Barcelona.
