Arjen Robben retires from the national team

Arjen Robben has retired from Holland’s national team after the failure of his representative to qualify for the upcoming World Cup.

The Bayern Munich winger scored the two Tulips goals in a 2-0 win over Sweden, but that did not suffice for qualification.

Although both sides had equal points, the Swedes secured play-off participation thanks to the best goalscorer.

The 33-year-old debuted for the national team in 2003 and has been one of the most important players throughout the years.

He was one of the finest in the 2010 finals, which his representative missed from Spain in continuation.

Robben has recorded 96 appearances for the Netherlands and has scored 37 goals.

The winger has an average of one goal or assist every 112 minutes and besides the number of goals he has also given 29 assists.
