London: Didier Drogba has announced his retirement from international football with the Ivory Coast.
The 36-year-old, who last month re-joined Chelsea following a two-season absence with spells in China and Turkey, made his 104th and final appearance for Les Elephants during the World Cup in Brazil.
“It is with much sadness that I have decided to retire from international football,” Drogba said. “I am very proud to have been captain of this team for eight years and to have contributed to placing my country on the world stage of football, taking part in three World Cups and two African Cup of Nations finals,” he added.
