Spain’s Jordi Alba retires from international football


Inter Miami defender Jordi Alba has retired from international football with Spain, per ESPN.

Alba, 34, calls time on his career with La Roja after winning 93 caps and scoring nine goals.

He signs off after captaining Spain to the UEFA Nations League earlier this year, while he was also part of the squad that won the European Championships in 2012, scoring in the final against Italy.

Alba joined Inter Miami from Barcelona earlier this summer and decided now is also the right moment to step aside and allow Spain to bring through the next generation.

The left-back can now focus on the next chapter of his career in the United States, where he is playing alongside former Barça teammates Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets.
