Steven Gerrard has described his decision to retire from international football as a "sad day" and said it was "one of the toughest" calls he has made in his career.
“I have enjoyed every minute of representing my country and it is a sad day for me knowing that I won’t pull on the England shirt again," Gerrard said in a statement published on the FA's website.
He paid tribute to England's "amazing" fans, who he said "got behind the team despite the disappointing results" at the World Cup in Brazil.
Gerrard also heaped praise on England boss Roy Hodgson, saying: “I’d especially like to thank Roy [Hodgson], firstly for giving me the captaincy permanently when he took the job, making me the proudest man in the country and allowing me to fulfil my childhood dream.
"He has been very understanding over the past few weeks and is a man I will always hold in the highest regard," he added.

Steven Gerrard has admitted Liverpool's 3-2 victory over bitter rivals Manchester City on the day marking the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster was "the longest 90 minutes" of his life.
"It felt like the clock was going backwards in some parts of that game," Gerrard told Sky Sports 1.
Today's win is a giant step towards Liverpool's first league title since 1990, with the Reds to now face Norwich City.
Gerrard's 10-year-old cousin Jon Paul Gilhooley was among the 96 people who died in the 1989 disaster.
"I think it’s a nice gesture and also with the connection I’ve got to Hillsborough, with my own family, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I think the timing’s right and having spoken to the club I’ve decided to do it now," Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo.
The donation coincides with tonight's Merseyside derby and the 33-year-old said it was a gesture which acknowledged Everton's continued support for the campaign.
"Their show of support has been there since the tragedy happened. But alongside the gesture I am making, I and every other Liverpool fan can only thank the Evertonians for their support."
Answering a question from ITV News Sports Editor Steve Scott, the midfielder said: "I'm not interested in what Rio Ferdinand has to say about this group of players.
"When you play for England there's always a lot of opinions outside the group, especially in a World Cup year...but when we're inside (the group) we don't take much notice of what is said outside."
He added that he disagreed with Ferdinand's comments and felt the current England squad did have an identity.
