Spain midfielder David Silva has announced his retirement from international duty after winning 125 caps.
The 32-year-old Manchester City playmaker, who won the World Cup with La Roja in 2010 as well as clinching back-to-back European Championship trophies, has called time on a 12-year career with Spain.
In an open letter published on his official Twitter account, Silva said: "It's taken many days and weeks of reflection and analysis to reach this decision to end my time with the Spanish team.
"Without doubt, it has been one of the hardest decisions of my career, and one I am making with gratitude and humility."
