Frank Lampard has announced that he has decided to retire from international football after making 106 appearances for England.

The 36-year-old former Chelsea man, who recently joined Manchester City on loan from New York City FC, scored 29 goals during a distinguished 15-year international career.

He played at the last three World Cups and was named England player of the year in 2004 and 2005.

However, he has now decided to follow his long-time midfield partner Steven Gerrard into international retirement, two weeks before qualifying begins for Euro 2016.

Lampard released a statement which read: “I have taken the decision to retire from international football.

“It has been a very tough decision for me to make, which is why I have given it so much thought since the World Cup.

“I have always been exceptionally proud and honoured to represent my country and have to say, looking back, I have enjoyed every minute of wearing the England shirt.”

Lampard left Chelsea at the end of last season after a trophy-laden 13-year spell with the London club.
