England's Rachel Daly Retires from International Football

England forward Rachel Daly has announced her retirement from international football.

Rushhoursport understands she held talks with England boss Sarina Wiegman during the international break and told her team-mates she was retiring after the Lionesses' 2-0 win against the Republic of Ireland, where she came on as a late substitute.

The 32-year old earned 84 caps and was part of the England squad which won the Euros in 2022 and reached the 2023 World Cup final. She scored 16 goals for her country, including one on her debut against Serbia in 2016.

Aston Villa's Daly, who played at youth level for England, said in a statement the "time has come for me to hang my boots up on the international stage" and "pass on that baton to the next generation".

Wiegman added on Instagram: "I would like to pay tribute to Rachel Daly.

"Rachel has been an incredible part of our story and the history we've made together. It has been a privilege to work with her. I have never worked with a player so versatile, always with a smile on her face, always bringing energy and trying to do her best for the team.

"She'll be missed not just by me but all the other staff members, players and of course the fans."
