Bournemouth's Polish goalkeeper Artur Boruc has announced his retirement from international football.

The 37-year-old made 64 appearances for his country, including three at the 2006 World Cup, and is Poland's most-capped goalkeeper.

Boruc has been mainly used as a back-up keeper to Lukasz Fabianski and Wojciech Szczesny in recent years.

"It has not been an easy decision for me and has been one that I've taken incredibly seriously," he said.external-link

"However, after much thought and consideration I feel that now is the right time in order to focus fully both on my family and club career at AFC Bournemouth."
