Hellas Verona midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has announced his retirement from international duty.

The 30-year-old closes the door on his international career, 12 years after making his debut.

He made over 70 appearances for the Black Stars, scoring about 10 goals and representing the national team at multiple Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) tournaments and at the World Cup.


"Although it's been a while I've been out of the national team, I'm here today to say the nation has been very excellent to me throughout my career with the national team,'' Badu told Football Made in Ghana.

''On this day after talking to my family and loved ones, I think it's time to officially retire from the national team.

''I've tried several times to win the Afcon for the nation after winning the U20 Afcon and World Cup. We came close twice, but it's a bit disappointing that we couldn’t win it.

''I, however, believe my colleagues who are now in the national team will do that for us in the coming years.

"I say thank you to the GFA [Ghana Football Association], Government of Ghana and all Ghanaians for your support during my tenure with the national team.

"I'm available if the nation needs me to help in any way. Thank you Ghana and may God bless us all."Badu made his first Ghana appearance against Lesotho in 2008 and registered his first goal against Congo in 2011.

He went on to play at the 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2017 Afcon tournaments, the last tournament in Gabon providing his last run-out with the national team.
