Edwin Set To Quit

Edwin Set To Quit

Edwin van der Sar has announced that he will retire from international football after Euro 2008.

The veteran Dutchman, celebrating his 37th birthday today, is already in talks with United regarding a contract extension which would keep him at the club for another season. He will boost his chances of completing that last campaign in top form by quitting the international stage after Euro 2008.

'I will stop with with the Oranje after Euro 2008. The time has come,' he told Radio 538.

He boasts 121 caps for his country, a highly impressive number. He looks certain to bow out after a major tournament because Holland did not qualify yet, they only have to register a win against either Luxembourg or Belarus - hardly insurmountable difficulty for the Oranje.
