Goalkeeper Artur Boruc has announced his retirement from international football.

The Polish stopper who is 37 made 64 appearances for his country, including three at the 2006 World Cup, and is Poland’s most-capped goalkeeper.

Boruc has been mainly used as a back-up keeper to Lukasz Fabianski and Wojciech Szczesny in recent years.

“However, after much thought and consideration I feel that now is the right time in order to focus fully both on my family and club career at AFC Bournemouth,” said Boruc, who began his career in British football with a successful spell at Celtic.

“I would like to thank the (Poland) coach, Adam Nawalka, and everyone connected with Poland for all of the fantastic support that I’ve received ever since I made my debut back in 2004.

“It’s been an amazing journey and I will always look back with great pride to have represented my country so many times.

“I have loved every minute of my time playing for the national team and feel proud, humbled and honoured to end my international career as Poland’s most capped goalkeeper of all time.”
