Wales midfielder retires from international football
Wales midfielder David Vaughan has retired from international football.
The 33-year-old will be absent when manager Chris Coleman names his squad on Wednesday for the opening World Cup qualifier against Moldova in September.
The Nottingham Forest midfielder, who was unused during Wales' Euro 2016 campaign, won 42 caps after making his debut against the United States in 2003.
Vaughan, however, has withdrawn from contention for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers as the midfielder looks to extend his club career.
The Abergele-born player was the longest-serving Wales player in their squad that reached the Euro 2016 semi-final although Vaughan remained an unused substitute throughout the campaign.
