Stephen Ward Announces His Retirement From International Soccer.

: 03/15/2019 - 10:44

Stephen Ward says he's retiring from international football "with a heavy heart".

The Burnley left back won 50 Republic of Ireland caps, with 49 of those as starts.

Ward was named in Mick McCarthy's provisional 38-man squad for this month's Euro 2020 qualifiers with Gibraltar and Georgia, but failed to make the cut for the final 23.

The 33-year old was a member of both the Euro 2012 and Euro 2016 squads, and marks the 1-nil win over Italy in Lille as the peak of his career in green.
