CF Montreal captain Victor Wanyama announced on Monday he has retired from international football, ending his 15-year service for Harambee Stars.

The midfielder opted to hang his boots from the East African nation after former coach Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee overlooked him during the 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Uganda and Rwanda respectively.

In the statement obtained by Goal, Wanyama admitted playing for the national team was a dream come true and appreciated the privilege of captaining the team.
