The 34-year-old former Real Madrid goalkeeper, who now plays for Portuguese side Porto, made his 166th appearance for his country as Spain drew 0-0 away to Romania in a friendly on Sunday, reports Xinhua.

After the game Casillas decided to hold a brief chat with fans on his Twitter account and answered several questions about his career until one question, “Do you see the moment of your retirement close?”

Casillas responded, “It is getting closer all the time. It’s close,” which some will take as the biggest sign yet that he will retire from international football at the end of the 2016 Euro Championships.
