Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson has released a public statement over his international retirement.
Robinson was chosen by Fabio Capello for Wednesday's friendly against Hungary, but declared he did not want to be involved if he was behind Joe Hart and Ben Foster in the pecking order having already been unhappy at missing out on World Cup selection for South Africa.
Robinson put out a statement to say: "I have taken the decision to retire from international football with immediate effect.
"Only now have I been able to make this decision as previously I haven't been in contention for selection.
"As a professional who wants to play every time I have the chance I don't see myself as a number three or four keeper and find that role very frustrating," he added.
"I haven't had the opportunity of anything other than this [not being first choice] in recent years therefore I feel it in the best interest of myself and my club Blackburn Rovers that I concentrate solely on my club football.
"I wish the (England) team every success."
