Riise calls time on Norway career

Fulham left-back John Arne Riise has retired from international football as Norway's most-capped player.

Former Liverpool defender Riise, 32, has won 110 caps for his nation since making his debut against Iceland in 2000.

"After a lot of thought I've decided not to continue with international football," Riise said in a statement on Monday.

"I am going into the final stage of my career and I'm at an age where I have to take a clear decision if I want to achieve my final goal, to play another four or five years in Europe."

Norway coach Egil Olsen said: "John Arne has shown great enthusiasm and was always the first man at training and player meetings. I respect his decision and wish to thank him for his contribution."

Norwegian FA president Yngve Hallen added: "John Arne has had a fantastic history in international football. He has been a decisive player in many matches. His contribution on the pitch has been formidable."

Norway are fourth in World Cup Group E qualifying, four points behind leaders Switzerland and two adrift of Iceland and Albania with five matches to play.
