Argen Robben Retires From International Football After Netherlands Miss World Cup
The attacker scored a double for his country as they fell short of making Russia in what has turned out to be his final international game
Arjen Robben has announced his retirement from international football following the Netherlands’s failure to make the 2018 World Cup.
The Bayern Munich attacker scored both goals for the Oranje as he captained his side to a 2-0 victory over Sweden on the final matchday of UEFA World Cup qualification.
While the result brought the Netherlands level on points with Sweden for the play-off places, Robben and the Dutch lost the tie-breaker to the Swedes due to an inferior goal difference.
The brace today means Robben finishes his international career with 37 goals in 96 caps.
