Tomasson retires from international football

Jon Dahl Tomasson has announced his retirement from international football with Denmark.

Tomasson won his 112th and final cap in the group-stage defeat to Japan at the World Cup. He scored a late penalty in that 3-1 loss to become his country's joint record goalscorer with 52.

"The national team has always had the biggest impact on me in my career. It has been a great honour for me to represent my country,'' said Tomasson on the Danish Football Federation's official website. "The national team has been a big part of my career for the last 13 years and it is an important chapter in my life that I am now ending.

"This was a decision that I had to give myself time to take.''

Tomasson, who is in his second spell with Feyenoord, has also played for Heerenveen, Newcastle, AC Milan, Stuttgart and Villarreal.
