Poland’s Boruc Retires from International Football

WARSAW, Poland. March 3 (AP) – Poland’s most capped goalkeeper Artur Boruc announced his retirement from international football on Wednesday, aged 37 to concentrate on his club football with AFC Bournemouth.

Boruc won his 64th and final cap in a friendly against Slovenia in November, made public his decision via the website of the English Premier League club.

Artur Boruc, who played for Poland in the 2006 FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO 2008, said it had been a tough decision.

“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,” said Boruc, who made his name in British football with a successful spell at Celtic.

“I would like to thank the (Polish) coach, Adam Nawalka, and everyone connected with Poland for all of the fantastic support that I’ve received ever since I made my debut back in 2004.

“It’s been an amazing journey and I will always look back with great pride to have represented my country so many times.

“I have loved every minute of my time playing for the national team and feel proud, humbled and honoured to end my international career as Poland’s most capped goalkeeper of all time,” added Boruc, who earned the nickname the “Holy Goalie” for his habit of crossing himself before games while at Celtic FC.
