LONDON (AP) — Didier Drogba has announced his retirement from international football after 12 years playing for the Ivory Coast.

The 36-year-old striker made more than 100 appearances for the Ivorians and played in three World Cups, most recently in Brazil this summer. He also played in two editions of the African Cup of Nations.

Drogba says he is "proud ... to have contributed to placing my country on the world stage of football."

The two-time African Footballer of the Year returned to Chelsea for a second spell at the London club this summer.
