​Aussie skipper Milligan retires from international football

Australia captain Mark Milligan has retired from international football.

The midfielder, who has been in four World Cup squads and won 80 caps, joined League One side Southend United in the summer from Scottish Premiership club Hibernian.

"It has been a privilege to be involved with the Socceroos over the last 14-odd years," 34-year-old Milligan said.

"To be able to represent my country over that time is above and beyond anything I could have dreamed of."
