Uganda left-back Godfrey Walusimbi has announced his international retirement after a decade of service to The Cranes.
The 30-year-old won 105 caps for his country between 2009 and July this year, but says he wants to now focus on his club future.
“It has been 10 years down the road having the great honour and privilege to represent my country, Uganda, in international football,” Walusimbi said in a statement.
“Together with the support of my teammates, management, fans and government at large. I believe I have done my best-concerning representation with full ability, so to that, I decided to let the younger ones showcase their abilities too, and we hope they too will embody the spirit of the nation.
“I wish the national team the best of luck in their future endeavours and now the focus will be on my current club. I would like to thank you [Uganda association], the government and my family members.”
Walusimbi was part of the Uganda side that competed at both the 2017 and 2019 Africa Cup of Nations finals.
He has formerly played for Gor Mahia and Kaizer Chiefs in South Africa, but recently signed with KF Vllaznia in Albania.
