Former England and Chelsea striker Eni Aluko has announced her decision to retire from football at the age of 32.

Her 102nd and final England cap came in 2016, after which Aluko was embroiled in a discrimination case against former England manager Mark Sampson.

“It’s time to hang up my boots and retire as a professional footballer,” Aluko posted on Twitter.



In 2017, the FA ­apologised to Aluko for racially ­discriminatory remarks made by Sampson in 2014.

Thanks for the full circle moments and crazy unexpected journey.” Aluko spent two years at Chelsea from 2007-2009 before leaving to play football in America.

Aluko left her last club Juventus in December, having won the Coppa Italia and the Serie A title during her time with the Italian outfit.

The forward won more than 100 caps for England from 2004-2016 and was part of the Team GB side at the London 2012 Olympics.
