Share

Arjen Robben has officially bid farewell to global football after announcing his retirement from the Dutch national team following their 2-0 victory over Sweden, tonight.

Robben enjoyed a fabulous global career after he burst onto the scene aged 19 in a friendly against Portugal back in April 2003.

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.

They finished with a tally of +17, eight goals better off than the Dutch who had to win by a seven-goal margin to overturn the deficit. "It hasn't been an easy decision but I am 33 and now must give my full focus to my club", said Robben.

Robben made his debut in April 2003 and won 96 caps, scoring 37 times.

Netherlands ideally needed a three or four goal advantage at half time to really rattle the Swedes, who took the life out of their opponents by surviving the opening 20 minutes of the second period without scare.
