🚨 Victor Wanyama announces retirement from international football

Kenyan midfielder and former Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama has announced his retirement from international football.

In a statement on his social media, the 30-year-old thanked fans for their support over the years, saying it was time 'to pass the mantle to younger players'. 

Part of the statement read; 

"From making my debut against Nigeria to captaining the team in the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt, - these past 14 years have gone beyond what I thought was possible"

"We have shared great moments together and I'm proud to have been your captain and leader,"

Wanyama has been part of the national team set-up for years now, memorably captaining the team in the AFCON finals in Egypt in 2019.
