Wanyama Calls Time on International Career

Last week Victor Wanyama announced his retirement from international football, so at we thought it a good time to take a retro-look at a career spanning almost 400 appearances at club level alone.

The announcement came as a surprise to many in east Africa despite returning Kenya coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee omitting Wanyama from his squad for September’s opening two World Cup qualifiers.

Interestingly Mulee’s fifth stint as Kenya boss (one lasted only a single day in December 2005) ended with the sack shortly after and optimism rose in the country that newly appointed Engin Firat would recall the former Celtic, Southampton and Spurs midfielder for this month’s World Cup qualifiers.
