Spartak Moscow's Stranzl quits Austrian national team

Spartak Moscow defender Martin Stranzl has quit the Austrian national team.

The 29-year old announced his retirement from international after learning he had lost his place in the side under coach Didi Constantini.

The former 1860 Munich and VfB Stuttgart star won 56 caps for Austria and although he will be a big loss to the national squad, his decision has been accepted by the manager.

"I respect Martin Stranzl's decision and accept his retirement," Constantini said on the Austrian federation's official website.

"I wish him lots of success in his career."
