    Deco Retires

    Post by Admin on Fri Feb 05, 2010 4:39 am

    Chelsea midfielder Deco has made it clear that he will end his international career after the 2010 World Cup. The 32-year-old is ready to make way for a new generation.

    "I
    will end my international career after the 2010 World Cup. I'm getting
    older and playing international matches is exhausting me. Therefore,
    I've decided to make way for younger players," said Deco to Radio Globo.

    The
    creative midfielder was born and raised in Brazil, but gained
    Portuguese citizenship in 2002 after playing for six years in the
    Portuguese league with Alverca, Salgueiros and Porto.

    Deco has
    since become an intergral part of the Portugal set-up. The former
    Barcelona star has made over 70 international appearances for Portugal
    and played at Euro 2004, Euro 2008 and the 2006 World Cup.

    Congratz Deco for a great career and thanks for everything. Wink

    Deco has always been a solid player and a veteran for the Portuguese national team (not that I support them Laughing ).
