West Brom midfielder Brunt retires from international football

Championship West Brom's Northern Ireland midfielder Chris Brunt has retired from international football.

Brunt, 33, won 65 international caps and scored three goals after making his debut against Switzerland in 2004.

"I am disappointed Chris is retiring as I believe he still has much to offer the team, however I completely understand his decision to spend a bit more time with his young family and to concentrate on his club career," said boss Martin O'Neill.

"I want to thank him for everything he gave me on the pitch. He was a model professional and his contribution to the Northern Ireland team over the past 14 years will be remembered for a long time."
