Martins retires from international football

SaettleSounders  marksman Obafemi Martins has announced his retirement from international football, a decade after making his debut against Republic of Ireland.

The former Inter Milan and Newcastle United player has lifted the lid, saying he was forced to make this decision because he does not have a good relationship with his teammates in the Super Eagles setup.

“No, I am done with my national team, I will not go there any more. I do not have good relationships with some companions, ” Obafemi Martins said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“If they do not want me anymore, patience. I love my country, I have given so much. But there are problems and although I am called up, I do not go.”

Obafemi Martins scored 18 goals for the Super Eagles internationally, and has not been officially summoned to the national team for the past 21 months.
