He says it's been an honour to pull on a Wales shirt.

The Wales forward announced he would be stepping down from international duties saying:  

"I am grateful to have lived a dream in representing my nation at an International level. It has been an honour to pull on a shirt supported by true Pride and unrivalled Passion."

"Pride, in achieving what none thought we could and Passion, in being one nation #togetherstronger."

"I have made the decision to retire from International football. Long thought, but a decision made; commitments to my family and dedicating what time I have available to them and choosing to focus on my club career within sport and time needed away from the game."

"I wish Ryan Giggs and the team continued success in the years to come, and appreciate his understanding and support, a new generation to continue building on what Gary Speed and Chris Coleman have set in place."

Wales Boss Ryan Giggs says "He's an icon in Welsh football with the goal he scored against Belgium and I wish him all the best."
